Welsh Border Witchcraft



A Rendition of the Occult History of the Welsh March

by: Gary St. M. Nottingham

The occult history of the Welsh March is brought to life by the author in Welsh Border Witchcraft through stories of the cunning men and women, conjurors and healers, ceremonial magicians and witches who practised their arte in this liminal landscape.  This borderland between England and Wales is an area that is steeped in bloodshed and mystery.  These are the ancestral lands of Dr. John Dee and ones that are redolent of the spirit of Merlin, where the mysterious Sin-Eaters practised their trade.

Here, for centuries, various occult practitioners have flourished with their charms and their poppets.  Examples of these local charms and curses are discussed by the author, shining a light on their origins and purpose, often revealing that the knowledge and inspiration for the magic in this region came not only from the local area but also from much further afield.  Throughout the author draws on his own research, anecdotes and extensive local knowledge.
