Think of Derbyshire, and you’ll think of the Peak District, quaint cottages and Bakewell Tarts.
You probably won’t think of the county as being as a hotbed of Satanism, however, but that’s exactly what a survey has revealed.
In the 2011 census, 17 people in the Derbyshire town of Bolsover revealed that they worshipped the devil, the largest number in the country, according to the Derbyshire Times.
Other beliefs listed on the survey included Buddhism, Paganism, and Jedi Knights.
A spokesman for the Office For National Statistics refused to speculate on whether Derbyshire citizens were true supporters of the anti-Christ, but said: ‘We collect the data and whatever people’s choices in how they fill in the religious affiliation is entirely up to them.’
