Example text

The legend of Dorrington Church boasts a similar belief. On a clear, moon-lit night you can peek through the keyhole to watch the Devil playing with glass marbles across the church floor. Exactly what Old Nick looks like we are not sure, although there is one story, retold by Rudkin,3 that describes him as a ‘funny little ole man’. He appeared when a young girl at Crosby decided she wanted to become a witch, and so at midnight one time she visited an old woman known locally as a witch. The old woman told the girl that, in order to become one, she must stand up then bend over and touch her toes, saying ‘all that I ‘ave a-tween me finger tips an’ me toes I give to thee’ (meaning the Devil).

Eventually he had a large hole dug next to it and, presumably with the greatest of difficulty, had the boulder rolled in. Rudkin tells us that it was one Reverend Dodsworth, then vicar of Anwick, who didn’t want the stone to be lost, so commissioned a traction engine to haul it to its present place beside the church. She finishes by quoting a parishioner of Anwick, from 1931, who stated the Drake Stone came to be thus named because when men went to work in the mornings they would always see two drakes sheltering beneath it.

His evil radar is alerted and he swoops in to help continue the chaos and corruption. One example of this in Lincolnshire was around 869 at the Benedictine abbey at Crowland. The legend goes that the monks had fallen into sinful ways, drinking heavily and behaving in a manner unbefitting their order. It was rumoured that one monk had even sold his soul to Satan, for the secret of everlasting life. One day, after months of dreadful behaviour, there was a terrible rumbling of thunder which shook the very walls of the monastery.
