Devil's Dyke (Newmarket, England - Entertainment)
Type: This Anglo-Saxon earthwork spreads over 7 miles
Formed as a defensive measure by the East Anglian army during the seventh century, this Anglo-Saxon earthwork, formerly known as St Edmund’s Dyke or the “Great Ditch,” spreads over seven miles from the villages of Reach to Dullingham. Legend has it that the devil was spurned from a wedding in the former village and, as he fled, created the ditch of the Dyke with his tail. It is possible to walk the entire length on the footpath on top and witness the expanse of Heathland, which at one point houses the Rowley Mile racecourse on one side and July Course on the other. You can finish at the Dyke’s End pub (see Eats). For more info, go to:
