The Gypsy's Grave

The Gypsy’s Grave

Most often referred to as The Gypsy’s Grave, but sometimes as the Boy’s Grave, this spot marks the place where someone was laid to rest. According to accounts, a gypsy boy called Joseph who was in charge of a flock of sheep. He fell asleep and the sheep strayed and unable to face the consequences he hanged himself. It is often tended and has flowers left, whereas some have claimed that cyclists are mysteriously forced to dismount at the spot.
