Alderley Edge Wizards
The Legend of the Alderley Edge Wizard
In a time gone by a farmer was taking his white mare to market. Travelling from the town of Mobberley over Alderley Edge he met an elderly gentleman, who had long white hair and beard and was dressed in robes. The man asked the farmer if he would sell him his horse for a fair price, but the farmer was eager to take the mare to the market in hope of getting more money for her there. All day at the market although many looked and admired the mare, no one made the man an offer and at day’s end he started for home. As he was again crossing the sandstone rocks of Alderley Edge the gentleman appeared again. He again offered the farmer a fair price for the mare, and the man was happy this time to sell her as he had had no luck all day in the market. The man asked him to follow him to a place where he would be paid. They came to a sandstone cliff at the foot of the edge and the man, a wizard in reality struck at the rock with his staff and by his magic there appeared an opening. They entered into the chamber that was now open to them and he reassured the farmer. Within the chamber in the deepest of sleeps was an army of warriors dressed in armour. At each warriors side a beautiful white horse in a trance of sleep, each waiting for its rider to wake. The wizard took the man to a place within the cavern that was filled with treasures and told him to help himself to what would be a fair price for the mare. But the farmer was greedy and as he was leaving the door to the cavern shut, and he never found an entrance ever again. To this day no man has ever found the entrance but it is said that the army sleeps until it is needed by King and Country, then they will rise from their magical sleep and ride out of the Edge.
