Weston History - The Legend of Jack O'Legs 

In 1138 the legend of Jack O'Legs is believed to have been born and lived in a cave nestled in the woods near Weston. Jack got his name as he was apparently as big as a giant and considered a local hero because Jack used to rob the rich to feed the poor. One day he stole bread from a Baldock mill but was caught in the act when he was then clobbered and blinded. Jack was given one last request before being hung and that was for him to fire an arrow and be buried where it landed, which was in the Weston churchyard, some 3 miles from Baldock. Two stones mark his grave which are set 14 feet apart. The Legend of Jack O'Legs is still remembered today with information about him on a board on Weston Village green and the road between Baldock and Gravely being known as Jacks Hill.
