The Devil’s Footprints

by

The Devil’s Footprints is the name given to a strange phenomenon that occured on the night of the 8th-9th February 1855 in Devon, England. After snow had fallen overnight the people of South Devon awoke to find a series of hoof-like footprints in the snow. These footprints extended for over 100 miles and appeared to have been made by a cloven hoof. Many of the local villagers believed they had been made by the Devil.
