Evil Combe
Evil Combe
A view of SX6067 : Evil Combe - Dartmoor, where two arms of the combe meet amid bog, grass and scattered rocks. Richard's description, that "evil probably derives from the miner's name for a pick", is doubtless correct, but the close juxtaposition of tin workings and bog in this place gives the name a certain resonance.
