The mysterious footprints, which appeared overnight in heavy snowfall in South Devon in 1855, have never been adequately explained.
According to reports, they stretched for over one hundred miles, and went through solid walls and haystacks, appearing on the other side as though there was no barrier.
The cloven hoof like prints struck fear into the local communities, as it was believed the prints belonged to the devil himself, who had visited South Devon in search of sinners.
This strange phenomena still remains an unexplained mystery.
