Halifax is a minister town in West Yorkshire, with the name first being recorded as “Halyfax” is 1091. The town was synonymous with woollen manufacture from the 15th century, and in modern days is renowned for its Mackintosh chocolate and toffee as well as the Halifax Bank.

Historically, Halifax was notoriously known for an early of the execution guillotine, the Halifax Gibbet, which was used to execute criminals by decapitation. The Halifax Gibber was last used in 1650, but a replica has been erected at the original site on Gibbet Street.

The bogus incident came to an end after numerous locals admitted that they had in fact faked the whole thing, inflicting the wounds upon themselves.
