"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

The Hairy Hands

TeachTeach Your TeacherHomePosts: 9,951 mod
During a news report, the presenter mentioned a legend from Devon - the hairy hands.

The Hairy Hands is a ghost story/legend that built up around a stretch of road in Dartmoor in the English county of Devon, which was purported to have seen an unusually high number of motor vehicle accidents during the early 20th century.

According to the story, the Hairy Hands are a pair of disembodied hands that appear suddenly, and grab the steering wheel of a moving car or the handlebars of a motorcycle, and then force the victim off the road.

Can you imagine trying to tell your insurance company?

    I think that is a very scary thing to imagine, but there are lots of myths and legends around that part of the country that have become famous over the years.
