    Let’s not forget that Gibbets hill was used because you could see the bodies from all over town. Also the opening film to Rick Mercer’s (career launching?) one man stage show “Show Me the Button, I’ll Push It – or Charles Lynch Must Die” was shot there. We built a gibbet up there and everything. Flip Janes (RIP) played the hangman.
