Y tylwyth teg
Tylwyth Teg (Middle Welsh for "Fair Family") is the most usual term in Wales for the mythological creatures corresponding to the Irish Sidhe, comparable to the fairies of English and continental folklore. Other names for them included Bendith y Mamau ("Blessing of the Mothers"), Gwyllion or Ellyllon.
They are described as fair-haired and covet golden-haired human children whom they kidnap, leaving changelings (or "crimbils") in their place. They dance and make fairy rings and they live underground or under the water. They bestow riches on those they favour but these gifts vanish if they are spoken of, and fairy maidens may become the wives of human men.
As the Bendith y Mamau they are sometimes described as stunted and ugly. They ride horses in fairy rades (processions) and visit houses where bowls of milk are customarily put out for them. A changeling story tells of a woman whose three year old son was stolen and she was given a threefold instruction by a "cunning man" (magician) on how to get him back. She removed the top from a raw egg and began stirring the contents, and as the changeling watched her do this certain comments he made established his otherworldly identity. She then went to a crossroads at midnight during the full moon and observed a fairy rade in order to confirm that her son was with them. Lastly she obtained a black hen and without plucking it she roasted it over a wood fire until every feather dropped off. The changeling then disappeared and her son was returned to her.

The Fern Law of Faery: Y Tylwyth Teg
Llyn Tarw "Along the tops of the hills between Carno and Pontdolgoch in Montgomoryshire there are three lakes called Llyn Tarw, Llyn Mawr and Llyn Du which have traditionally been regarded as a haunt of the Tylwyth Teg ('Fair People'). Even today the lakes are off the beaten track and rarely does anyone pass them except the occasional shepherd or angler.

Natures Whispers: Y Tylwyth Teg (The Fair Family)
Anglesey is steeped in history, myth and magic. Keen to find out more, I have been reading 'Rumours and Oddities from North Wales' a selection of folklore, myths and ghost stories by Meirion and Wayne Evans.In Wales, the Fae Folk are known as Y tylwyth teg (The Fair Family) and can appear as small as a rose petal, large as an adult or anywhere in between.

Intothewildwould: Fairy Rings:cylch y Tylwyth Teg
"Legends warn you that those who join the Fairy dance within the circle under the moon are sometimes lost to time and place" (Peggy Jentoft) This afternoon I found the remains of two impressive fairy rings, or, rather arcs, of partial fairy rings, in Sydenham Hill woods. Finding and entering such rings means I am now in thrall to elves and fairies, and, according to Welsh folklore, may be required to dance myself to death with the fairies at some point in the future, this seems like a small price to pay for encountering such a natural marvel. One of the rings was formed by large Shaggy Parasols, (see the image below), I'd guess it was at least 7 foot wide.
