Forest Perilous is a dark and dangerous forest that borders Glastonbury Tor.


It was the only way through which to reach Glastonbury Tor. The Black Knight was part of the Forest and bound its power with him with magic. Another supernatural occupant was the sprite Widdershins and an enchanted hag in a stone circle who turned men into stone. The boars were another hazard.

Despite this, men like the hunter Hugo the Bold tried to live out of the forest.

An his way to the Tor, Gawaine was defeated by the Black Knight, until Arthur vanquished him and freed the Knight. He also dispelled the sorcery of the Hag.
