A Perfect Place to Visit

Padgate was the scene of the murder in 1791 of a post boy, James Hogworth.

A certain Edward Miles was caught and put on trial. Found guilty, he was sentenced to hang and to be gibbeted. He was duly executed and his body taken to Padgate where it was encased in a steel cage and then hung until it rotted away as an example to others.

Miles was the the last person to be gibbeted in the Warrington area, although this charming custom was only abolished in 1861. The gibbet cage can be seen in Warrington Museum & Art Gallery.
