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 Church of St John the Baptist in Paignton has a very fine and beautifully painted Three Hares boss, the church itself is well worth a visit tucked away in an ancient part of Paignton it is made out of the red sandstone of Devon. It is the most southerly church on my trail.
This romantic little church is found in the remote village of Kelly which is between Tavistock and Launceston. It is the furthest West on my Three Hares Trail and has one ancient wooden carved boss of the Three Hares and a nice modern copy. It is well worth a visit.
We were over in Tavistock yesterday taking more of my Three Hares Trail leaflets to St Eustachius Church where there is a lovely carved & painted Three Hares Boss as seen above in my painting of the church. More leaflets can be obtained through my gallery in Chagford and the trail is a great thing to do!
