Teenie fairy doors! EEEEEK! Love. I came across these gems while researching my upcoming trip to the UK and I just had to share this with you. Alan Cleaver, creator of Strange Britain, has taken some great photos of the mysteriously appearing (and disappearing) fairy doors of “Fairy Row” located in Gelt Wood, Cumbria.

Cumbria is a non-metropolitan county in England with loads of fairy legend, holy wells, lush landscapes and is home to the Lake District. It is also where the Fairy Steps of Beetham can be found.
