The tales of the Cottingley Fairies have been well noted for over 80 years by people of all ages and all walks of life. Movies have recaptured the magical stories but the truth has been somewhat distorted and "adaptations" of the events have been released in line with true Big Screen tradition.

What you are about to read is an extensive account of the case with dates, quotes and facts so that it can be used as a resource as well as being a good bedtime story. Where possible we have included photographs and illustrations but many more can be found in the Photo Gallery
