Gallows Hill - 14
Of the 31 condemned to death in 1692, 14 women
and 5 men rode in the open cart from nearby Prison Lane, passing this very
spot, to Gallows Hill, located about half a mile from here. Two women
avoided the execution because they were pregnant. Two dogs were hanged at
Gallows Hill, for the girls said that the dogs had given them "the evil
eye" and were possessed by the devil.
