Artist's Description

Autumnal golden hour light by the River Plym – in Dewerstone Woods in Dartmoor National Park, Devon. The gnarled ancient oak woodland is managed by the National Trust.

The nearest village is Shaugh Prior.

This is definitely not the place to be on a black winter’s night – the Devil (locally known as ‘Dewer’) has long been associated with the Dewerstone. The Devil’s fearsome pack of wisht-hounds are said to roam the desolate moors at night, seeking unrepentant sinners, whom they drive over the edge of the Dewerstone Rock to the Devil waiting below.

Such stories of packs of phantom hounds are common in moorland areas, and perhaps date back to a time when wolves still inhabited the more remote parts of the country. Their eventual extinction in Britain was largely due to this process of demonisation.
