Lee Green Scar, Extwistle
According to Leslie Chapple ‘Romantic Old Houses and Their Tales’, ‘In 1902, in a lecture to the Burnley Literary and Scientific Club, Mr. Tattersall Wilkinson, the sage of Roggerham, said: “In bygone days it was a generally accepted superstition that the devil could be raised by reciting the Lord’s Prayer backwards, and woe betide the raisers who did not manage to give him a task he could not do. It is said that some country people raised his satanic majesty at Lee Green, near Extwistle. In this instance he accomplished every task put before him. Terror and dismay filled the minds of the unlucky bumpkins as the time was fast drawing nigh when he would claim his recompense. At this awful moment they bethought themselves to fetch a priest from Towneley, who arrived just in the nick of time when the devil vanished in a flash of lightning at the sight of his mortal enemy, who duly laid the foe of man with bell and book at the foot of Lee Green Scar, where he rests till this day.”
I do not know exactly where Lee Green Scar is yet, so the map will just show a point in the general area.
