The Dark Conjuror of Batcombe

In darkest Dorset below the northern scarp slope of the Dorset Downs lies a straggling village called Batcombe, a curious village with one very curious tale.
This story dates from the late sixteenth century, a period of time when Religious unrest and Superstition was a part of everyday village life.

This is the story of a man that sold his soul to the Devil one cold winters night.
