Graveley

It is surprising what you can find out about a place name. When I put in Graveley I found an interesting note about a gentleman of the road who operated nearby.It is surprising what you can find out about a place name. When I put in Graveley I found an interesting note about a gentleman of the road who operated nearby.
Just up the road from the village is an area known as ‘Jacks Hill’. So named after Jack o Legs who was Hertfordshire’s Robin Hood by all accounts’.
He took on the local bakers who were charging exorbitant   money for bread in nearby Baldock. After robbing them from  time to time he was eventually caught by the bakers who took his eyes out before hanging him from a gibbet in Baldock.
Why was he called Jack o Legs you may ask? It is thought it was due to his height which may or may not be supported by the markers on his grave in Weston Church nearby.
I challenge someone to tell me just how tall he was. Got a tape measure handy?
Another interesting fact comes to light. Near-by is a memorial to two airmen who died in an air crash with their Deperdussin monoplane. One of these can apparently be seen at the Shuttleworth Museum.
The accident occurred on 6th September 1912.
