THE SITE OF TYBURN TREE AT MARBLE ARCH

THE SITE OF TYBURN TREE AT MARBLE ARCH

The stone tablet which marks the site of Tyburn tree can be seen in the roadway at Marble Arch. Representing in its form the ancient triangular gallows, it records that Tyburn Tree was removed in 1759; public executions at Tyburn, however, continued for some years later, a movable gallows being substituted for the fixed structure. In the eighteenth century Park Lane was known as Tyburn Lane, and the western end of Oxford Street as Tyburn Road.
