wistman’s wood **Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2014 Finalist** (by Graham M Green)
This small, mystical, stunted woodland has been held in awe and for many fear. Tales of Druids, ghosts, the Devil and a host of other supernatural creatures abound, some dating back through millenia. Many writers have described the wood as being “the most haunted place on Dartmoor”. Locals will never venture near once the sun begins its slow descent over the nearby granite outcrops for it is when the dark mantle of night draws tight that the heinous denizens of the wood stalk the moor in search of their human victims. So be afraid, very afraid, as the wagging finger of fate warns you to stay clear and risk not your mortal soul in the ‘Wood of the Wisemen’.
