Devil's Stone (Luckwell Bridge)

Natural Rock Feature


Visited 19.7.11

The chap I asked about St Luke's Well also knew where the Devil's Stone was – how lucky was that!

Directions: Follow the track to the left of 'The Old Chapel House'. You will then come to West Mill House and go through the wooden gate on the right. Follow the path through the field (stream on your left) and through the next wooden gate. You are now in the Devil's Stone field. 15 minute walk.
The stone is a good 'un. I large lump of quartz in the middle of the field; on the brow of a hill – lovely surroundings. I find it difficult to believe that this stone 'just happens' to be here.
I think it much more likely that it was placed in this location.
The stone itself is 1.5 metres tall x 2 metres wide.
A lovely place to sit awhile.

As for St Luke's Well:
Apparently it had dried up and was filled in back in the 1980's. I was actually parked next to where it once stood – now just a plain old grass field. Shame.
