Courtesy of Dockyard Historical Trust - "In 1776 while Britain is contesting the right of locals & plantation owners in the Americas to breakaway from the Empire and declare independence, a local dockyard worker nicknamed ‘Jack the Painter’ being a follower of all the revolutionary talk in France at the time and a supporter of what was happening across the Atlantic. To that end he decided to take a stand and set light to the Rope House causing great consternation to the fleet during a time of conflict. He was soon caught and sent to trial. Stand on the site of his crime. See and hear the story as it unfolds and hear of the retribution the workforce took on the culprit on his final day".
