  • We quickly found the tombstone for the so-called grave of Dick Turpin but we were immediately sceptical about its authenticity. Reading the very informative panel by the gate, our suspicions were conf...  more »

  • This site is marred by the state of the grounds. It is a great shame that there are clearly locals who use this churchyard to let their dogs run around and foul the grass. It is a terrible shame and m...  more »

  • OK .... sign explaining it all was present. Short walk from city centre. Best experienced when watching the corresponding horrible histories video.
  • A few minutes walk from the route of the town wall, located behind the Court buildings. The grave has a prominent headstone, but the grave itself is a patch of bare earth (everywhere else in the graveyard is grassed). There is a small tableu providing some history and background of Richard Turpin. Not much else to see unless you want to get some rubbings from the other grave stones.
  • Interesting place with an information board to explain it. In a nice area a short walk from the city centre.
  • Worth looking for, just to say you have seen it. Grave yard is a bit scruffy.
  • Interesting piece of history from England's past. Grave and bio on the infamous Highwayman.
