I live in Devon where we are lucky to have 17 churches with 29 roof bosses of the Three Hares symbol and I have painted each one and made a trail leaflet to take you to find them. All the original paintings can be seen in my gallery Ludgate Fine Art, 20 The Square, Chagford,Dartmoor,Devon,TQ13 8AB.

The Three Hares of North Bovey
North Bovey is a very pretty village on Dartmoor, it has the River Bovey winding around it and many interesting walks through the pretty Devon lanes going out to the moors. The village is full of pretty thatched cottages set around the village green with a great pub the Ring of Bells Inn. The church of St John the Baptist has one beautifully painted Three Hares Boss in its fine wagon roof where you can also see the heads of Edward the 1st and his two wives Queen Eleanor of Castile and Queen Marguerite of France.
