The Devil's Chimney
The Devil's Chimney
Left behind - for some reason - by the quarrymen who worked this area for around 200 years until quarrying ceased in 1927 or thereabouts. This is now a well known landmark: it's marked on the OS map of the area and you can see on this photograph where it's been reinforced with stone and mortar.
