According to the legends of the 14th-15th century, the city of Durham (in the north-east of England), there lived a giant worm. In the town of Fatfield there is now a hill called Worm Hill, it was believed that there was a den of this creature in it.

The worm was so huge that it wrapped its body around the hill 3-4 times (some legends even say about 10 rings). He ate not only sheep, but also children, and also loved milk very much.

It is believed that this is an aquatic creature capable of being on land for a long time. When it was caught in the river for the first time, it was still small and resembled a large worm or salamander. There were ten gill holes on each side of his head, and the size of the creature was indicated differently in different legends (about a finger or almost a meter).

Sometimes it was indicated that it had small legs, and sometimes it was called not a worm, but a snake.
