Three Judges[edit]

The plaque on the site, IRCC, mentions only two of the three RJ's (one the son-in-law of the other). (And i don't think i'm mistaken: I can name the 3 surnames, and was surprised by the plaque, as i had always told the story naming all 3.)

Only Goffe and Whalley hid in the Judges' Cave, I believe. At the time, Dixwell had already been living in New Haven for some time under an alias. --Polaron | Talk 03:33, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Yes, i see our bios say so.
With Google i found
14 for " three Judges'" OR" three Judges" OR " three Judge's" "West Rock Ridge " "Judge's cave" OR "Judges cave" OR "Judges' cave".
44 for "West Rock Ridge " "Judge's cave" OR "Judges cave" OR "Judges' cave"
Among those hits, the only state-sponsored page i could recognize as such was [ from nochildleftinside], the (IIRC) joint state-DEP/AMC project, and the descriptions seem to be written by the participating families.
The state page for the park makes no mention (including on the fairly valuable map). I conclude that the "Three Judges' Cave" comes from people knowing the cave exists, and that New Haven had 3 regicide judges, without having the details down right. (BTW, there are
5 for "three Judges motel".
including a kinda cool hero story.
I'm dropping the "three".

radio towers and cliffs[edit]

I was at the sports zone on S Bradley road today, and I assume the hill behind the building is part of WRRP I would say the article should mention that the hill has several radio type towers, and that the cliffs are quite large an ddangerous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:05, 12 June 2011 (UTC)


The tunnel through West Rock is the only highway tunnel in the state of Connecticut. Currently, “West Rock Tunnel” just serves as a redirect to this article; however, I think that this tunnel is certainly notable enough to have an article in its own right. (See article on Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountain Tunnel for a decent example of how a tunnel article should be done.) I may soon have to just make an executive decision and begin work on the West Rock Tunnel myself, as I think such an article is probably long overdue. --Sgt. R.K.

I decided to take my own initiative and draft an article (albeit a stub) for this tunnel, which can be found at "Heroes Tunnel," the tunnel's current name. I have also modified the redirect page "West Rock Tunnel" to instead redirect to the Heroes Tunnel page instead of this article. --09:12, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
