Topsham faked on Mystery Map

ITV's two-part programme Mystery Map aired recently: see Mystery Map: Ben Shephard and Julia Bradbury talk ghosts, UFOs and weird happenings. The second episode looked potentially of interest, as it covered the mystery of the "Devil's footprints" incident of 1855. It was filmed in part by the River Exe in Topsham, using fake snow sprayed on Topsham Museum's river garden to attempt to recreate the horseshoe-like prints. The snow was not all that was fake, however: the internal and external shots identified as "the village church of Topsham, in Devon" were actually the church at the nearby Clyst St George. Did they think nobody would notice?


For readers in the ITV region, the relevant episode of Mystery Map can be seen on ITV Player until around Dec 27th; the Devil's Footprints section is in the third segment.
