SX8764 : Gallows Gate

taken 10 years ago, near to Compton, Devon, Great Britain

Gallows Gate
Gallows Gate
A gate and pair of posts at a picnic site on a hilltop overlooking Torquay (alas, the picnic tables don't actually have this view). The gate is a sort of tribute to the legend of Gallows Gate; a nearby plaque explains that a thief was "hung" on a gate by the rope he used to carry the sheep he had stolen, when he fell one way and the sheep the other. This gate doesn't really look high enough.
