£120.00 – £128.00
The Wantley Dragon is a legend about a knight who slayed a terrifying dragon that lived on Wharncliffe Crags in South Yorkshire. The story is recounted in a comic ballad of 1685 which, although not well-known today, was quite popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. https://allpoetry.com/The-Dragon-of-Wantley The dragon, which was as big as a Trojan Horse devoured everything in its path, even trees and houses until the knight, More of More Hall, suitably fortified with strong ale and dressed in a suit of extremely spiky Sheffield steel armour, landed a fatal kick to the dragon’s ‘arse-gut’ its only weak spot, as the dragon explains with it’s dying breath.
