Winter's Gibbet, Steng Cross

  • Description

    "In 1791, the body of William Winter was hung here in chains in sight of the place where he had murdered old Margaret Crozier of the Raw, Elsdon. The present gibbet was erected on the exact site of the original. The large block of stone at the foot of the gibbet is the base of the Saxon cross which marked the highest point of this ancient drove road down which cattle were driven from Scotland to the English markets."
