History and Nature Combines for a pleasant short walk
by Fergalh  19 Oct 2020
Just before the Hindhead tunnel on the A5 there is a turn off for the Gibbet Hill. The large car park here caters for the visitors to the pleasant walk to the summit trig which overlooks the natural feature of the Punch Bowl.. There is a large Celtic Cross nearby extensive views north and south from here on a clear day by all accounts (misty when I was there). This area was notorious for highwaymen and thieves back in the day, but there was no sign of any bankers on the day I was there. The hill was named after a gibbet was raised to hanged three men who robbed a sailor back in the middle ages in this spot. The natural feature of the punch bowl below the trig pillar is also mentioned in the novel Nicholas Nickelby by Charles Dickins. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5435/comment/20977/
