The Devil’s Hoofprints, South Devon
Did the Devil themself come to town on a cold February night in Devon and just sort of wander around? That’s just one of the hypotheses put forward to explain the uncanny appearance of prints in the snow all across the county.
Was it Old Nick? Or was it a gang of kangaroos? An acrobatic rodent? Or, like so many things in life, was it simply badgers?
Who knows? YOU DECIDE. We certainly don’t.
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
