Cottingley Deacons

Elsie Wah first stumbled upon the Cottingley Deacons after going to church to light a candle. “They were making a terrible racket, trying to play music with bits of twig and stuff”. A good friend of Elsie’s mother, a man by the name of Arthur Conan Deacon encouraged her and gave her a box browny. In the end it was Elsie’s sister, Ughgmnhna, that did it for Arthur after promising the little Deacons an audience with Blue Peter.Cottingley Deacons
