Runaway Lane
Runaway Lane
Looking along this green lane towards Modbury, the church spire can clearly be seen on the horizon. This lane probably got it's unusual name following the civil war battle of Modbury when in February 1643, two thousand Royalist troops retreated down this lane after being defeated by Parliamentary forces.
