Leásungspell is an epic poem set in the wilds of Northumbria in the year 657 AD, and tells the tale of a monk walking from the Anglo Saxon monastery of Herutea (Hartlepool) to Streonshalh (Whitby) carrying secret letters from Abbess Hild (St Hilda). The poem is written in a synthesis of Old English, modern English and Cleveland, Yorkshire and Northumbrian Dialect forms. Perhaps the best way to experience Leásungspell is to read the text while listening to the audio recitals of the poem set to music and sound effects.
