Unofficial Britain is a celebration of the uncelebrated.
A champion of the overlooked.
A history of the forgotten.
Welcome to Unofficial Britain, a hub for unusual perspectives on the landscape of the British Isles, exploring the urban, the rural and those spaces in between.
Tarry here a while and you’ll discover urban legends, arcane practices, alternative histories, re-imagined pasts, lost states, abandoned trails, unexplored nooks, cryptozoological beasts, haunting soundscapes, unreliable narrators, hallucinatory visions, analogue trips, contrary accounts and aimless wanders.
This site is the brainspawn of Gareth E. Rees, author of Marshland: Dreams & Nightmares on the Edge of London, formerly a blogger at The Marshman Chronicles, now broadcasting weird missives from the coastline of East Sussex.
Stories, art, music and film submissions welcome. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
