Stoneymollan Road is a "coffin road". This road was used to bring people to the cemetery. Corpse roads provided a practical means for transporting corpses, often from remote communities, to cemeteries that had burial rights, such as parish churches and chapels of ease. In Britain, such routes can also be known by a number of other names: bier road, burial road, coffin road, coffin line, lyke or lych way, funeral road, procession way, corpse way, etc. Such "church-ways" have developed a great deal of associated folklore regarding wraiths, spirits, ghosts, etc.
