Reports claimed that who (or whatever) made the tracks appeared to have vaulted a wall, crossed rooftops ran for between 40 and 100 miles, went through a drainpipe and even passed through a haystack

However the possibility exists that they could have been made by piskeys (or pixies) who are said to be fond of dancing around and would cerainly be capable of traveling vast difference if the old tales are to be believed! Usually they are known to be friendly but occasionally have been known to cause such mischief as leading travelers in the wrong direction or bewildering them (a practice which is known as being pixie-led! If you should ever feel bewildered or mystified try the old remedy of removing your coat or jacket and turning it inside out.) The residents of Ottery St Mary in Devon celebrate Pixie Day in June each year.
This mystery was reported in The Times on the 16th of February and the Illustrated London News on the 24th of the month
