In this 257th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the two Cornish legends of “THE CHURCH THE DEVIL STOLE and THE PARSON AND THE CLERK”
In THE CHURCH THE DEVIL STOLE we are told of the legend of Brent Tor near Lydford and the church which stands as if it were, a sentry watching the West for Dartmoor. This is the strange legend of this church which crowns its summit.
In THE PARSON AND THE CLERK Baba Indaba tells us of a Bishop of Exeter who lay very ill at Dawlish, on the South Devon coast. Among those who visited him frequently was the parson of an inland parish who was ambitious enough to hope that, should the good bishop die, he would be chosen to fill his place. However, the parson was a man of violent temper, and his continued visits to the sick man did not improve this, for his journey was a long and dreary one, and the bishop, he thought, took an unconscionable time in dying. But he had to maintain his reputation for piety, and so it happened that on a winter night he was riding towards Dawlish through the rain, guided, as was his custom, by his parish clerk. This is the legend of what happened to the ambitious Parson and his clerk.
