Easy stroll back to nearby bar with same name.....
by Fergalh  18 Oct 2020
Park at Devils Dyke Bar at the top of Devils Dyke Road and follow track to summit. The legend of its name is interesting really. The legend holds that the devil was digging a trench to allow the sea to flood the many churches in the Weald of Sussex. The digging disturbed an old woman who lit a candle, or angered a rooster causing it to crow, making the devil believe that the morning was fast approaching. The devil then fled, leaving his trench unfinished. The last shovel of earth he threw over his shoulder fell into the sea, forming the Isle of Wight. Took a short stroll over to its twin top the interesting named Fulking Hill...Pronounciation is important for this one... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b5444/comment/20969/
