DEVIL’S CHIM­NEY, Glouces­ter­shire

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

This crooked lime­stone pil­lar of mys­te­ri­ous ori­gin stands above a quarry in the Cotswold Edge, where it’s said to vent smoke from the fur­naces of hell. Driven un­der­ground af­ter hurl­ing stones at church­go­ers from Leck­hamp­ton Hill, the Devil is kept at bay by coins left atop the chim­ney.
