Looking for Information on English Midlands Folklore and Mythology

Hi, if anybody here could give me some information on spirits and mythical creatures that live in the English Midlands it would be gladly appreciated. I am specifically looking for Nottingham folklore beside the obvious but interesting Robin Hood.

Was Irish/Scottish/English folklore and mythology a part of everyday life in the past?

In modern times we often think of Irish/Scottish/English folklore and mythology as being a prominent part of everyday life in the past. Banshees, leprechauns, fairies, etc. Movies are made depicting folklore/mythology playing prominent roles in everyday life, books written showing the depth and richness of folklore/mythology for these respective cultures. Even making Irish soda breads we cut a cross to bless it, but also to let the fairies out.

Would the people of these cultures, let’s say between 1700-1800’s (a lot of my post are deleted for not giving a specific time period, but it can be any time period post-paganism/druids once Christianity spread) have thought much of this folklore/mythology in their everyday life or do we make more of it in modern times?

Do we exaggerate the significance of the folklore in the past where it was much less of a way of life back then?

Need Details on Scottish/Welsh/English/Irish Folklore

Good day!

I am glad, that I stumbled upon this subreddit, because I need help.

I am currently trying to write a or multiple books about an Institute in the middle of the United Kingdom in a fictional town somewhere east of Carlisle.

The school itself is one for mythical creatures that are reality in this universe, like Fairies, Selkies, Redcaps and the likes.

My problem is: I only know the Wikipedia versions of all those English folklore creatures since I sadly don't live in or around the UK and I want to know more. All the juicy details. So I want to ask you guys to just give me some random infos on mythical creatures from in and around Scotland, Ireland, the UK etc.

Is there a creature that would be perfect for a school/Institute setting? One that would absolutely hate to go there? Maybe creatures that pose danger to those inside the Institute?

And I really wanna get into it, so please provide me with as much details as possible.

And if you don't know much about the specific creatures, then feel free to educate me about Scottish and English Folklore in general? Are a lot of people superstitious? Are there rituals?

Maybe you're just a local and you can't remember much but you've heard about something some time ago? Just put it in the comments, I need a whole info dump.

I know, I can just read that all up on the internet and I will, but I also kinda wanna talk to people about this. I believe only then a book can really come to life.

I appreciate every little contribution!!

What is a keriang in english and is there any folklore about it?

I am currently trying to translate some survey work from Kalimantan (bahasa Indonesia) and the word 'keriang' has come up as an answer to a question about 'what are you scared of in the forest'? I figure this is maybe a typo or possibly folklore? a friend of mine suggested it might be the cicadas that come out in huge numbers sometimes. If they are cicadas, why would people be scared of them? Any help with this would be great!

I'm looking for books about traditional English mythical/folklore creatures, but for adults

I'm looking for a book about old mythical creatures (such as pixies, gnomes, kelpies, "little people" etc) from English folklore. I mean the real old fashioned, traditional stuff, not like nice pink unicorns and friendly griffins and things. I mean like ugly little men who come and steal your baby and things like that. Ideally from Cornish and Devonian folklore, but general English folklore creatures is good enough!

However, I'd like one that is made for adults and so is more in depth, and talks about the history of those stories and the darker side of them. If it talks about folklore creatures that are less known about that would be good, but I know that might be too specific.

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: I'm an idiot and forgot to specify- I'm not looking for a book with a story, I'm looking for a book ABOUT these things, as in explaining them and the history behind them. I can't really say non fiction because of course they arent real but.. hopefully you know what I mean.

I am starting to see how author J.R.R. Tolkien and the creators of the video game Skyrim get much of their influence from Old English and Old Norse places, names, and folklore.

The runes used to write in Old Norse look exactly like the Dwarvish runes seen in LOTR movies, games, and book sketches.

There is a place in England in the game called Beorn Cave, which immediately called to mind the character Beorn from The Hobbit and his man-bear race of skin-changing Beornings.

Hearing the background conversations in Old Norse and Old English made me think of the Rohirric and Elven languages in LOTR because the pronunciations and words sound so similar. (FenRIR, MithranDIR)

Monsters from Norse mythology are present in Skyrim, like the undead draugr, who also apparently served as inspiration for Tolkien’s barrow-wights, I’ve learned.

Place and people names are also standing out at me, like Shitsby, how it’s similar to Bywater, Yggdrasil and Ysgramor, Jorlund and Jorvik. The ones that stood out to me the most are how both Valhalla and Skyrim use the name Aesir for the gods and have the name Hrothgar. It’s all so cool and really awakens to nerd in me.

I’m aware that much of Skyrim’s culture, government, and lore draws upon the Vikings. Did I miss any other similarities between this game, Tolkien lore, and Skyrim?

Why was it once believed in English folklore that the souls of babies originated in swamps and springs?

I think everybody knows that storks are often depicted as carrying babies to expecting parents, but I learned the reason that it's storks that carry them is that storks live in swamps, and it was once believed that the souls of children once originated in the swamp. Why was this? Was there a folklore rationale for baby souls coming from swamps?

Good books about English Folklore and Mythology?

I'm a huge fan of Mythology, and as a person who plays many games set in a fantasy setting I've always wanted to read some of the original English folkore stories and mythology. However in my country such stories are not exactly popular, and even searching the web hasn't helped much.
So can someone recommend me a book that contains english folklore and mythology? Things like stories about dwarves or dragons, maybe even Arthurian legends?
