According to a newspaper article by Sarah Newstead that appeared in the News & Star on 28 September 2011 entitled 'Is Cumbria The Most Haunted?'

Brampton historian and tour guide, Mike Goodman, also tells the kind of fireside stories that make you sleep with the light on….there is the tale of the Capon Tree which stood just outside the town. Mike said: “Six Highlanders from the Jacobite rebellion were hanged there in 1745. On the anniversary of their being hung, if you go to there, you will see the bodies of the Highlanders swinging in the trees.”
