Have you ever heard of a place called Devils Rock, let me tell how it got there.
Once upon a time there was a giant he was playing at castle hill with his friend the devil, they were throwing and catching a rock, the giant threw too far when it was his turn and then the rock flew all the way to a path leading away from a small wood and landed point in the ground. It was only a matter of time before the devil reached the rock, he heaved at it with all his strengh but could not get it out of the ground, he was so furious he jumped up marvelously high landing on the spectaculer rock that was threw by the giant and left an enourmous three toed footprint.
Over time the rock and the landscape has changed and the rock has become a beatiful cliff on past a forest. It has been told that the devil walked over the moor leaving a foot print there as well. If you vist it then you'll find the foot print under a sappling and that is the legend of devils rock. Through out the times the story changes as it is past from generations so it might not be the one you know.
Hi Paige,nice tale. I recognize the devil playing a part in the legend of Devil's Footprint but am not familiar with him cracking the rock or the giant, is this how the tale was told to you or have you (or do you know who) contributed to it? Either way, good work.
Also what is the location of Devil's Footprint in Netherton? or what is the closest road?
