Title: Satan Lying Across The Road


The story related to me was as follows:—Near Pentrevoelas lived a man called John Ty’nllidiart, who was in the habit of taking, yearly, cattle from the uplands in his neighbourhood, to be wintered in the Vale of Clwyd.  Once, whilst thus engaged, he saw lying across the road right in front of him and the cattle, completely blocking up the way, Satan with his head on one wall and his tail on the other, moaning horribly.  John, as might be expected, hurried homewards, leaving his charge to take their chance with the Evil One, but long before he came to his house, the odour of brimstone had preceded him, and his wife was only too glad to find that it was her husband that came through the door, for she thought that it was someone else that was approaching.
