Website of the month, October 2012…

The website of the month for October 2012 is Local Myths and Legends, a website dedicated to documenting local myths and legends and providing this information in an easily-accessible and visually pleasing way. Of interest to residents of, and visitors to, Cambridge will be the Fen Tiger – a panther-like creature that supposedly stalks the Cambridgeshire countryside. Unfortunately, the website appears to be in a dormant state – the Ireland section, for example, seems to be empty and the website’s Twitter account hasn’t seen any tweets since late 2009. While it seems to ultimately be a demonstration of the abilities of the website’s creator(s) rather than someone’s ongoing hobby, it would be nice if it kept going – not all of the world’s information is best refined on and presented via Wikipedia.
