The Three-Legged Mare 2

Thanks to Steffe, Gunn and Hilda for their responses to yesterday's photograph. Today's gives the macabre nexplanation of the name of this High Petergate pub. It not only has a gallows on its sign but also a scale model of the three-man gibbet in the beer garden. Locally known as "The Wonkey Donkey" (wonkey = crooked), it was the first York Brewery pub to be opened. That's one of the west towers of the Minster on the left.
