This year sees the 100th anniversary of the first ever photograph of the world famous Cottingley fairies. It was taken in the Bradford Disitrict in 1917.
The story of the Cottingley fairies is not the first to be told of these small folk and their doings here in Yorkshire. Tales have been whispered across Airedale and Wharfedale for centuries!
Hold on tight as we delve into the mysterious world of the fairy folk, but be warned, they're not all butterfly wings and smiles.
