Devil's Lap of Stones

Round Barrow(s)

Folklore

There are three round barrows / cairns in this wood - this large one has been dug into in the past to leave a crescent shape. The devil originally dropped the stones here one morning when he stayed up too late, and was surprised when he heard the cock crow.
