Artist's Description

Dewerstone Rocks (above this wood, through which runs the River Plym) is huge crag is named after Dewer, the dreaded ‘Wisht Huntsman’ who in other guises is none other than Satan.

Not only does Dewer terrorise the moor at night as he hunts with his dreaded pack of phantom hounds but he haunts the lofty heights of The Dewerstone. Appearing as a tall figure dressed in satanic black he would lure or chase poor unsuspecting travellers to the highest crag and then disappear leaving them to fall to their deaths straight into the waiting jaws of his spectral hounds below.

The Dewerstone Woods are near Shaugh Prior in Dartmoor National Park in Devon.
