Devil's Quoits

Archeological site

GB |


The name "Devil's Quoits" is associated with a legend that states that the Devil once played quoits with a beggar for his soul and won by flinging the great stones. Tradition has it that the Devil and his opponent were sitting on the top of Wytham Hill, several miles away, when they played their game - presumably on or near the site of the Swinford Farm trig point which provides a commanding view across the Thames Valley.
