Brograve Mill stands as a lonely sentinel on land once owned by a man said to have made a bargain with the Devil which he had no intention of honouring.

On this episode Stacia and Siofra discuss the tale of Sir Berney Brograve and his mowing match with the Devil. They speculate what Sir Berney’s prize might have been if he had won and why the Devil couldn’t get through a simple wooden door.
