Summary

Every year, on the winter solstice, the small town of Melcombe observes an annual custom, the roots and meaning of which are lost in the mists of time. A torchlit procession to the ancient tomb of Cairndale Knapp, overlooking the town, puts the old sun to bed and greets the new sun in the morning, restoring balance to the year.     

This year, however, Mr Sam Notice has bought the Knapp and has set about landscaping it. And with the felling of an ancient yew tree, the roots and meaning of the old custom spring malevolently to life, as the Winter Queen is finally released from her prison and bent on revenge.     

Told over the two days of the winter solstice - Pilgrim walks again between the worlds of magick and of men.

Another wonderful story

Loved it. So good to have another Pilgrim tale that is as good as the rest. I do hope there will be more soon. Marvellous cast, brilliant voices and Paul Hilton has the best voice for William Palmer

Excellent addition to previous series

I was hoping for a new full series but this special short series will do. Currently listening again to the first four series, excellent inclusion of British with genuinely scary "fairies", excellent writing and the acting is first rate, really brings it all to life.
