What unsettling vision startled a truck driver on Detling Hill one snowy night? What is a wallaby doing on the motorway? And is there really a leaf man that resides in Spinney Woods? Urban legends are the funny and frightening and folklore people share today. Just like the early folk tales that came before them, these tales are formed from reactions to events in the modern world, and reflect our current values. For the first time, Neil Arnold explores the power of the local Kent urban legend -- murky stories whispered in classrooms and dark woods, and ripping yarns passed on around campfires and across the bar. Urban legends may be just exaggerated rumors, but they embed themselves into local folklore. The real question is, what truth lies behind them?
