Canoeing in No Man's Land - Old Harry Rocks

How may canoers can you spot?
There are a lot of stories about the naming these rocks. A legend says that the Devil (traditionally known "Old Harry") slept on the rocks. Another one says that the rocks were named after Harry Paye, the infamous Poole pirate, who hid his ship behind the rocks awaiting passing merchant vessels. There's also a story about a ninth-century Viking raid was thwarted by a storm and the drowned Earl Harold was turned into a pillar of chalk. The large outcrop of rock at the end of the cliffs is called as "No Man's Land".
