|Near Hartland Tor||Taken By Dave Bellamy|
|I stumbled across this memorial stone purely by accident. There is no path to it, I was trying in vain to ascend through the gorse to Hartland Tor from the East Dart River. I had given up and was picking my way back down the hill when I found it. The inscription reads: IN MEMORY OF WILLIAM DONAGHY OF LIVERPOOL WHO DIED BESIDE THIS STONE FEBRUARY 1914. It turns out William was a strange character. He went missing from Warrington, where he had a job as a school teacher, only to be found dead several months later sprawled out by this stone. On searching his body, a left luggage ticket issued by Exeter station was found. Upon presenting this ticket, it was discovered that his luggage had been deposited under a false name, and contained a revolver and a substantial amount of bullets. Nothing more is known, and the mystery stands to this day. Pretty cool eh?|
