546 Gun Hill from Leek

The Abbot of Dieulacres Abbey near Leek was not a man to be crossed, for he had the power to hang anyone he pleased, giving the unfortunate victim just 48 hours notice. Perhaps the only escape was over Gun Hill up the tree-lined Hollow Way, a sunken track little changed today.
