An image by Advertiser photographer Brian Eyre features this week.
The photograph shows the locks by the Gallows Inn pub.

The site gets its name from way back in the 17th century, when a gallows once stood at the bottom of Nottingham Road where criminals found guilty of crimes would be taken to be hanged.
