Jay's Grave

Jay's Grave near Hound Tor, Manaton. Legend has it that this is the grave of a servant girl, Kitty Jay, who was made pregnant by her master's son and committed suicide to avoid being sent to the workhouse. Fresh flowers are said to be placed on the grave every day by an unseen hand (possibly the Dartmoor piskies). The story is told in more detail on the Legendary Dartmoor website (see Link).
