SCENE | The West Country

"The West Country has been a magnet for freaks and mystics since medieval times. This swath of southwest England includes the impossibly green counties of Somerset, Devon, Dorset, and Cornwall. Pagans, Celts, druids, out-and-out charlatans, and ethereal goddesses have all been drawn to West Country's lush pastures and wooded knolls, bringing in their wake the scents of patchouli oil and weed." —Julia Chaplin in an excerpt from Gypset Travel.
