The Gardnerian Tradition of Wicca is named for Gerald B. Gardner, who first brought Wicca to public knowledge in 1951. Since that time, Wicca has become immensely popular in many different manifestations, most of which bear only a vague resemblance to the original.

We are the keepers of the flame, those who work Gardner's original tradition, an experiential, Mystery-based oathbound religion passed through initiation into lineaged covens.

We prefer to keep out of the public eye, and we find no value in being outrageously 'witchy'. We believe in keeping the tradition that was passed to us witch to witch, through initiation and custom. We know, through our own experiences, that our Goddess and God are real and work with us as we work with Themselves. And we are very serious about what we do, as the Priesthood of the Wicca.

This site is here to provide information for serious seekers of Gardnerian Wicca. Through this site you can learn what Gardnerian craft is, and if it might be right for you. It is a difficult path, and one not to be undertaken lightly.

Beaufort House

We have mounted the Beaufort House Geneaological Index of English Craft Traditions. Beaufort House is also being updated, but it has been difficult to find, so we decided to go ahead and make it available as the updates proceed.
