Money for old rope

The Bridport DaggerIn the past the town of Bridport saw its fame and great prosperity, for its hempen goods, and monopolised the manufacture of ropes, cables, and tackling for the fishing industry and the British Navy.

It was also here that the hangman's rope was traditionally made which
gave birth to the local proverb being 'stabbed by a Brydport Dagger,'. Referred to anyone who had been hung by the noose.
