Mis-behaving on Salisbury Plain can carry some stiff penalties. The picture below is of a monument which we stumbled across.

The text on this monument reads

This monument is erected for the awful end of Benjamin Colclough highway robber who fell dead at this spot attempting to escape his pursuers after robbing Mr Dean of Imber, in the evening of Oct 21st 1839 and was buried at Chitern without funeral rights.
"The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them." Prov 21.7
 
His three companions in iniquity:
Thomas Saunders, George Waters and Richard Harris were captured and sentenced at the ensuing quater session at Devizes for transportation for the term of 15 years.
"Though hand join in hand the wicked shall not be unpunished." Prov 11.21
