6 Oct: The fairy cow of South Lopham

South Lopham in Norfolk may not be able to boast a Fairy Godmother but it does lay claim to a Fairy Cow who apparently magically appeared during times of great hardship in the village and then disappeared when things improved.

Said to appear when drought threatened the wellbeing of villagers to offer her milk freely to all that needed it, when the drought ended, the magical beast would stamp down on a slab of sandstone, burning the imprint of her hoof into it, and then vanish.
