  EARTH MYSTERIES: Ley Lines
A ley may be identified simply by an aligned placing of marker sites, or it might be visible on the ground for all or part of its length by the remnants of an old straight track.
Ley Lines were 're-discovered' on 30 June 1921 by Alfred Watkins (1855-1935), a locally well-known and respected Herefordshire businessman, who while looking at a map for features of interest noticed a straight line that passed over hill tops through various points of interest, all of which were ancient.
He went on to associate ley lines with the Greek god Hermes (the Roman Mercury, the Norse Woden) who was the god of communication and of boundaries, the winged messenger, and the guide to travellers on unknown paths.

 The St. Michael's Line of Dartmoor
Ley lines and energy paths initially seemed to me as a fanciful notion but having read several books on the subject there appears to be an awful lot of either coincidences or truths.
According to them the line appropriately enters Dartmoor at Brentor and the church of St. Michael's, it then tracks north-west to Lydford where it was intersected by a 'fl line' at Lydford Castle.
This line is not so convincing because in the case of Throwleigh the church was not dedicated to Mary until 1846 and Gidleigh church is dedicated to St. Peter.
