Record Details

NHER Number:21600
Type of record:Monument
Name:Gibbet Piece


The area is labelled 'Gibbet Piece' on the Kettlestone tithe map of 1838. This suggests that it was the site of a post medieval gibbet. Another area in the parish is also known as 'Gibbet Piece' (NHER 12692) and there may have been some confusion between the two locations.
