Worth a visit , a little bit of history. Close to bus stop Not much else to see apart from the grave itself which is well preserved given its age.

Dont really know what I expected to see but this is just an old headstone with the name Turpin engraved on it. Not really a tourist attraction and located in the middle of a housing estate.
