Treasure Hunts at Lightwood
There’s a well known legend at Lightwood, passed down through the centuries, of the treasure the faeries brought with them on their long journey from faraway Scotland. The ancient legend tells of how Lilias of Rudha Mor transported, by means of ancient faerie magic, a treasure chest overflowing with gold and silver, beauteous pearls and sparkling gems of ruby, diamond, sapphire and emerald, all wrapped in resplendent cloth of gold.
Led by Lumley Timbersplit, the husband of Lilias of Rudha Mor and the greatest and most renowned faerie of all, the chest was hidden by the faeries deep inside Lightwood Forest. Protected by an ancient magic, the exact location of the treasure was known only to the faeries and to the two brothers who had befriended them, Andrew and Thomas of Lightwood.
Legend has it that the children who find this treasure must share it equally, and with the same grace and kindness as would the faeries themselves.
Legend also tells of how the children who find this treasure will receive many blessings in the years to come, kindly bestowed upon them by the gentle and wise faeries who continue to inhabit Lightwood Forest, flitting hither and yon, invisible to mortals.
Good luck with your search and, in the words of the Lightwood Forest faeries:
