Also see Exeter's Executed.

This is the main road out of Exeter to Honiton. It is interesting to note that it follows the ancient Fosse Way which can be traced from Exeter (Isca Dumnoriorum) to Lincoln (Lindum) and passed through Bath, Cirencester and Leicester. It is also the traditional route to London.

It starts at the junction of Rifford Road at the bottom of East Wonford Hill, at what was once Heavitree Bridge. After about half a mile, it splits, with the right branch going to Sidmouth. This Y junction is known as Gallows Cross and was once where the gallows where situated.
