On the edge of the infamous Fox Tor Mire stands an old stone cross, it's mounted upon a three stepped pedestal. This ancient cross is said in legend to be the tomb of Childe the Hunter who was a wealthy Saxon lord who loved the thrill of the chase. The legend tells of how one winter when Childe was out hunting he became trapped on the moor by a violent storm and became utterly stranded. In order to stay alive he disembowelled his horse and crept inside its carcass in the hope of keeping warm. Sadly this was not the case and he froze to death inside his carcass shelter.

A bit more of the story here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childe's_Tomb

Why am I sharing this information???? - If you would like to visit the site of Childe's tomb - then have a look here.

Ancient "Celtic" method of foretelling the future was to sleep in a carcass.
