Country Tales | Mysterious Footprints

Have you heard the tale of the mysterious footprints that appeared on 8th February 1855? It’s one of Devon’s well know mysteries and even inspired a film called ‘Dark Was The Night (2014).

After a snowy night in Devon, residents woke to find a trail of footprints left in the snow.  Nothing strange there you might think, but the trail stretched over 100 miles through the countryside.  Reports say the prints were 3″ wide and 8″ apart and covered walls, haystacks, drainpipes, roofs and even the frozen river.
