Cross on Gibbit Hill (35K)

The Gibbet Cross on Hindhead Common – ‘One night when they had climbed to the sumit of a hill where a tall granite cross marked the spot where had once stood a gibbet, Laura dropped to her knees on the turf and, pressing her ear to the cold stone of the shaft, recited in trance-like tones an imaginary conversation between two malefactors – an effort which was applauded as worthy of Poe’ — Flora Thompson in Heatherley
