Full Report: Historic capon tree planted in Brampton

An oak tree has been planted in Brampton on the site where six Jacobite soldiers were executed in 1746.

The original Capon Tree, from which they were hanged, died around a hundred years ago.

The new one commemorates their memory, and celebrates the peace between Scotland and England since the Jacobite uprisings.

It was planted by local school children in a ceremony organised by the parish council.
