"Cornwall is full of stories, and long ago when nights were dark and seas were high old Cornish-men would tell of Piskies and Knockers, Sprites and Spriggans, Giants and Skillywiddons".

This week Francis Monk tells some of these old stories, all taken from Eileen Molony's book Folk Tales from the West.
