Tyburn Tree, A 'Dead End' if ever there was one

Tyburn Tree, A 'Dead End' if ever there was one
Treasure Hunt: DeadEnd;

As Dead ends go this is a pretty busy one! :-) It is located in Marble arch which is the junction of the Bayswater Road, Edgware Road, Oxford Street and Park Lane. The 'Tyburn Tree' is a euphemism for the gallows that served Newgate Prison and this saw a lot of work in its day. Among it's records there is a certain John Palmer... an alias for Dick Turpin no less! Such was the power of this site Oliver Cromwells body was exhumed and then hung here... just to be sure I guess! :-)

Oh, hahaha! Got to admit that I did think of going to a cemetery for a shot for this challenge, but fortunately there are no gallows (or ex-gallows sites) around here.
You are pushing it (again!!!!) but I love the humour and if Kaye doesn't object, I won't!

I have to admit I also considered a gravestone for this assignment, but figured it would get bounced.

With Kaye away on her next cruise I think you may well just get away with this ;-} Clever
