Legend has it, that during the Anglo-Scots wars, Scottish raiders were in the area of Blanchland Abbey, Northumberland, and so the monks of the abbey decided to pray that the abbey would be spared. After doing so a thick mist soon descended on the valley, hiding the monastry from the Scottish raiding party.
