Snippet ...
Some think that Three Legged Cross may have been named after the gallows,
       which were often nicknamed the three legged mare.

Verwood has a namesake ...
 ... in Saskatchewan, Canada. It appears now to be mainly a Ghost Town with few families remaining It has many old buildings included houses, church, grain elevator and an old wooden pavement.
