The Wye Files
William Rouse Armstrong bares the infamy of being the only solicitor ever to have been hanged for murder in 1822.
Martin Beales (himself a solicitor) lives in Armstrong’s old house in Hay on Wye and has many spent years researching the case. He’s authored an award winning book, given several interviews, written many articles and given lectures countrywide. His investigations have become a lifelong obsession – his mission-to prove that Armstrong’s execution was a miscarriage of justice.
