One evening a man went to a neighbours wake. He left the house about midnight and proceeded on his way home. There were two ways by which (they) he could go home. On(e) one of these ways there was a fort but the road was seldom used.
As this road was much nearer he made up his mind to go home by it for once. He did so and so he came near the fort something strange came over him and he was made walk (ou) round the fort until dawn by some supernatural force. People always avoid passing by a fort
