In the 17th Century, due to its isolated position it was a popular haunt for poachers and smugglers.
The large stone situated at the front of the main building is part of Devonshire folklore.
Legend says that it dances at night when it hears the bells of Sidbury church, also that it rolls down the valley to drink at the River Sid – some say to wash away the bloodstains!
This Story is based on the legend called ‘The Witches Stone‘ or ‘The Rolling Stone of Gittisham Common‘.
It is set on Gittisham Common, which is approx. 2 miles from our school and the stone can be seen outside the Hare and Hounds pub at Putts
