The large barrow above the plantation produced a skeleton, and a cup of rude form. On this spot were erected double gallows for the execution of George Ruddock aged 20, and George Carpenter, 21, for the murder of Mr Webb, a farmer, and his maidservant at Roddenbury, near Longleat. They were hanged on December 28 1813 in the presence of the Yeomanry, the Chairman of Quarter Sessions, the Vicar of Warminster, and a vast multitude of spectators.
