Hickleton cross roads, it is believed that there once stood a gibbet where three highwaymen were hung The local vicar at the time decided to give the rotting three skulls a home and had them embedded into the entrance of the church with the motto "To Day for Me, Tomorrow for Thee" which means enjoy today as it may be your last! Also it wasn't unusual for the locals at the time to bury suicide victims and the crossroads became well known as a place of ghostly activity
The Hickleton ghost, a man on horseback, dressed in a black cloak and a tricorn hat has been seen numerous times in recent years .
