This is just one more gem to be found in the Old Town: the Hangman's Way, a roofed sentry walk, which was once part of the 14th Century fortifications that secured the river exit. While it is itself interesting, this bridge also provides the visitor...More

Came here on a walking tour and was interesting to learn a little more about it. The last walk people took over this bridge before the executioners house the other side. Picturesque views over the river

When we were there a freshly married couple walked around there and have had a photo session. A wooden bridge over a small river with sweet ducks. Lovely.

A very nice area to walk around and lots to see along the river with nice bridges and buildings, then walk into town and stop for coffee and cake.
