Gallows were often erected on parish boundaries.

Our walk starts from the spot where 4 different parish boundaries meet.

It follows well marked foot paths and includes some steep sections.

Please only do this walk if you have the gpx route on your mobile or can read maps - the return out of Cockington is quite tricky.

From the car park walk along Stantor. Lane then just before the lane becomes private turn right into a tunnel below the A380.

At the end of the tunnel turn left and continue along a permissive service road.

At the T junction turn left and follow lane past Widecombe farm.

Just before the A380 take cycle path on right and continue heading south along this path until Preston Down Road & roundabout.

Follow the John Musgrave Heritage Trail signs into Cockington.
