Pacts With The Devil......................
......A similar challenge to the Devil has a less fortunate outcome. A poacher in the village of Northchapel was even more drunk than usual and would not leave the pub and go home, claiming "may the Devil burn me if I do". In the end, he was left asleep on the floor in an adjoining room. In the morning, the landlord found a large pile of black ash in the centre of the room and a smell akin to Brimstone.

The ending 'fold' in names, such as Diddlesfold and Frithfold, indicated the presence of animal enclosures.
