Tales from the Black Meadow
1932 – London
The Brightwater Research project (created to explore the Black Meadow Phenomena) was closed due to lack of Government funding but the team were allowed to present one final lecture to explain their work, their failings, their frustrations and their hopes. This is their story…
This is the story of those who have disappeared into the mist on the North York Moors.
This is the story of a principled politician trying to uncover the truth regardless of the obstacles thrown in his path.
This is the story of the little people abandoned by those in power.
This is a story full of strange transformations…
…deals with the devil…
…horribly long walks…
…and dancing horsemen…
This is the story of one woman’s search for her sister.
This is the story of Edith Fenton.

Don’t go into the mist…
Everybody knows about the disappearances on the North York Moors. Everybody knows how, when the mist is high, a village appears, meadow hags stalk and bramble children play in the furrows.
In the 1930s Lord Brightwater and a team of scientists journeyed into the heart of the mist to find the answers to this most perplexing of modern day mysteries. Find out the secrets of this strange place, explore the mazes of bramble and heather and discover what lies within the creeping fog…

We are very pleased with the recent review by Electronic Sound.
In Issue 25 of this excellent magazine the Special Edition of "Tales from the Black Meadow" is described by the reviewer as "a gratifying atmospheric listen, filled with processed choral eeriness and murky radiophonic unease - a psychogeographic essential."
If you don't own the album you can buy it here. The album is made up of two beautifully presented discs. The first disc contains 20 tracks that link to the stories in the book of the same name (that you can buy here and read alongside). The second disc contains the lost Radio 4 documentary "Curse of the Black Meadow", four stories and 8 previously unreleased musical tracks.
