Gibbet on Rimside Moor
Gibbet on Rimside Moor
Erected in 2010, just west of the wood at Old Moorhouse Inn NU1005 : The Swinburne Arms Gibbet
A poem, 'The Hungry Gallows Tree', written in a Northumbrian dialect by Peter Athey for the occasion is attached to the upright post:
The first stanza setting the theme of his 'fanciful tale' of betrayal and a grisly hanging is given below:

Twixt Greystone Knowe and Wellhope Knowe,
On the auld North Turnpike Road
Stood the Rimside Inn
In former times a place o' grim forbode.
