The coven which Gerald Gardner joined has now been proven to exist, thanks to Philip Heselton's twenty years of assiduous research. He tells the tale of the famous New Forest Coven, not a fiction, but a real collection of real people. We meet Rosamund Sabine, Ernie Mason, Irene Lyon-Clarke and more, as well as learning more about Dafo, a remarking witch and Gerald's first working partner in the Craft. 

        Each Treadwell's copy comes with a free gift: a card illustrating the Southern Coven's ritual items displayed in the Museum of Witchcraft in Castletown, The cards of the first fifty orders will be personally inscribed to the buyers by Treadwell's founder Christina Oakley Harrington.
