4 Armstrong Murder Trail - Fri 3rd June - 2pm

6.00

Friday 3 June, 2pm-4pm

Major Herbert Rowse Armstrong was the only solicitor in the UK ever to be hanged, on 31 May 1922. He was convicted of murdering his wife with arsenic. He worked in Hay and lived in Cusop. This two-mile walk takes in the relevant sites to explain the story of the events. The walk leader will suggest Major Armstrong should not have been convicted upon the basis of the evidence given at his trial.

 

Meet at Hay Clock Tower, Broad Street, HR3 5BU and end at Cusop Church, with an optional group walk back into Hay.
