32 – Pixies

dartmoor moorland devon

Dartmoor, County Devon


The Pixies of South-West England. Mind you don’t call them Faeries now, for they have fought and won a war to earn the title of Pixie.

Thankfully, a Faerie war is a rare thing, but it does leave us with many questions…

But what does a Faerie war look like?

What weapons do they use?

Are Faerie/Pixies killed in a Faerie war?

Kitty takes a look at the unique landscape of south-west of England and ponders why the Pixies are so fixed in, and territorial of, this particular location.

We take a stroll with a fella who was lucky to survive being Pixie-led during a terrifyingly heavy mist and consider the close relationship between Pixies and horses.
