Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Yes, God has a sense of humour

August 4 is the feast day of St Sithney, patron saint of mad dogs.

When God told him that he had been chosen to be the patron saint of girls seeking husbands, Saint Sithney said he would rather take care of mad dogs. Saint Sithney received his requested patronage and, ever since, mad dogs have been given water from Saint Sithney’s well in Cornwall as a cure.

Water in Cornwall (and Devon), incidentally really does have a little something extra in it - and people in Cornwall live longer.
