Dare you swim in the spirit-filled waterways of Wales?

They might look calm and serene from land, but the rivers of Wales are steeped in accounts of strange creatures and trapped souls.

There's the apparition of a wailing woman seen up and down the River Severn, the Taff whirlpool which is said to be the work of a giant serpent, and the unusual case of an image of the Virgin Mary being put on trial near the River Dee.

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores the weird and wonderful tales connected to three of Wales' most well-known rivers on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.

 

What is the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast?

In early 2020, Mark Rees launched the world’s first podcast dedicated to Welsh ghost stories, folklore, myths and legends.

By combining his unique research and insights from many books and articles with long-lost tales from dusty old tomes, this weird and wonderful podcast takes a fascinating look at the country's countless curious subjects.

New episodes are uploaded every Thursday and feature everything from real-life encounters with pesky poltergeists to fantastical beasts from the Mabinogion and the skulled-headed Christmas favourite herself, the Mari Lwyd.
