Cock Drove walk

Combined Shape Created with Sketch.

The range of soft, grassy and tree-lined paths cleverly designed in to this predominantly built-up environment makes this an ideal door-step walk.

Paradise Road was named so as it is thought that the Town Gallows were sited here and that it was the closest that the poor souls who were about to suffer this fate would get to paradise before passing on.

Cannon Square takes its name from the ancient cannon that was kept in front of Cannon House at the Northern end of the High Street. Two smaller cannons were also kept by the front door of the Castle Hotel.
