History of this Archive
Thanks to the North Wales Region Coordinator and one-time District Manager, Steve Ludford, we can trace the history of our various magazines, which is as follows:
Our first ever magazine was entitled 'March Gas'. This was produced before the days of computers and our District Manager, Steve Ludford, used to compile it by cutting up little bits of paper and pasting them onto the page and then getting it photocopied.
The magazine then became Offas Ring, which was produced on an early PC.
The following reincarnation of the magazine was known as 'The Witch Tower'.
The magazine later returned to the name Offas Ring before becoming Myddle Earth.
For a while, South Wales had its own magazine titled Drops of the Awen. This was later amalgamated with Myddle Earth.
The Pagan Federation Mid-West and Wales is making available to its members an archive of its publications.Currently, we have the following editions of our magazines scheduled to be made available on our website:
- Drops of the Awen: nos. 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 29, 30 & 31
- Offas Ring: Summer 99 to Autumn 03 (there is a missing page in our copy of Offas Ring Samhain 99 so we would like a complete copy of this edition if possible)
- Myddle Earth: Yule 2003 to Present (the Midsummer 2004 Myddle Earth is also missing a page so we'll need another copy of that also).
- If anyone still holds any editions of these publications which do not appear in our archive, please could you get in touch as we would dearly love to see a complete archive of these magazines made available to our members. Not only do they provide some very interesting articles and prose, they also hold the fascinating history of our District in their pages.
