The Dewerstone, Dartmoor, Devon

The Dewerstone is a large granite outcrop over 100 metres high and its name derives from ‘Old Dewer’, the local term for the Devil. The legends say that he used to terrorize the moor at night with his pack of Wisht Hounds (from Wistmans Wood) and drive poor travelers to their deaths off the top of the Dewerstone.
