This spot marks a terrible tragedy
dating back to the troubles when families were divided over the rights of
Cromwell and Charles. Two brothers living at Tappington were divided between the
two factions but continued to live in the same house, each shutting himself away
from the other in separate apartments. By that time the Civil War was over, but
the same feeling prevailed and they never spoke to each other. But one night,
when going to bed, they happened to meet on the stairs. Bursting with anger and
fanaticism, the Puritan could not resist his opportunity. Turning suddenly, he
attacked his brother with an axe and killed him. An indentation on the
balustrade is said to have been caused by the first ineffectual blow of the axe.
