My father introduced me to the Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids when I was 15. His name was Philip Ross Nichols, but I soon came to know him by his mystical name of Nuinn.
John Soul was a prominent figure in Amesbury from the late nineteenth century to the earlier part of the twentieth century, remembered mostly from the 1920s to 1940 or thereabouts. Here we have two accounts of him. The first, created by member Hazel Ledgard, is derived from research and an account by her mother who, from the 1920s to the 1940s, came with her family to Amesbury for the summer solstice ceremony at Stonehenge.
