CURIOUS CHARACTERS FROM BRITISH FOLKLORE

Name: Fatlips

A woman who had lost her lover in the ‘45 Rebellion once made her home in a vault among the ruins of Dryburgh Abbey, Scotland. It was said that she had vowed she would never look on the sun again until her lover returned. When she heard he was dead, she would only come at night. She told her neighbours that while she was out, her cell was tidied up by a little man, a spirit she called Fatlips. He wore heavy iron shoes with which he trampled the clay floor of the vault to get rid of the damp.
