Rasmus Ganting, priest in Vagar ( 1614 – 1627 ), went on a journey to Sørvág, along with a servant. When they came to the hedge, it was open and a woman was in the opening inviting them in. Another woman appeared with a silver chalice filled with beer. He blew the froth back in her eyes before he drank so she could not see well. She said, “It was smart of You” and the priest answered, “Was I not a more learned man then You, I would not have come here”. They spent the night. The servant was afraid but the priest told him to hold on to his leg or foot and for Gods sake pull it if the priest overslept. Dawn came and the priest was pulled out of the hedge. When they were both safe. He closed the hedge shut and said, “Never again shall this hedge be opened”.
