This Day in Calderdale Local History

12th June 1839

On this day, workmen clearing a site at the foot of Gibbet Street in Halifax discovered the original Gibbet platform and two skulls placed half a metre apart from their skeletons thought to be the remains of John Wilkinson and Anthony Mitchell who were executed in 1650. In 1974 a 15-foot (4.5 metres) high replica of the Gibbet was constructed on the site. The original Gibbet blade was placed in the Pre-Industrial Museum, Piece Hall.
