Hangour Hill

Round Barrow(s)


A shepherd related to a friend of Leslie Grinsell told how the devil was making a ditch, and cleaned his spade by scraping it against a tree. A large lump of earth fell off, and this became Hangour Hill ('Ancient Burial Mounds of England' 1936).

The 'Devil's Dyke' is close by, so perhaps that was the ditch he was digging.
