About this spot
Winter’s Gibbet marks the place where the body of William Gibbet was put on public display in 1791 after his execution in Newcastle for the murder of a local woman. The head that hangs there now is made of wood and not original, however this atmospheric spot is a stark reminder of Northumberland’s brutal past.
