South-Eastern Fairies

kent gardens

The South-East (Kent, Surrey and East and West Sussex) has the single most disappointing collection lore from Britain and Ireland. Why is this? Is it simply that proximity to London and wealth from Continental trade destroyed rural life and rural superstitions more quickly. Or was there always a deficit of fairy-lore in this part of Britain? Did the medieval men and women of Kent concentrate on witches and midges?
