Gallows Field

namesake2small

Gallows Field is on the edge of Sandwich. A scrap of wasteland with iron railings and a padlocked gate with a small deep stream called the Guestling running along one edge. There is a sign telling you the horrible things that took place on this small scrap of land hangings, burnings, drownings (witches in the Guestling) and people buried alive.

The scene strikes me as odd, no one has ever built there or seemingly done anything there, it is simply left. The ground is sacred, protected in memory of the things that took place there. The history is burned in to the very ground and I am sure nothing will ever be built there.
