Set in the heart of Epping Forest, it was very near the Original Tea Hut that Dick Turpin shot and killed Thomas Morris, the servant of one of the Forest Keepers, which put a sizable price on his head - to be collected later when he was finally caught under an assumed name and imprisoned in York accussed of horse stealing. Even after his true identity was known and the reward paid, his horse theft trial continued as the penalty was the same as for murder - death. Found guilty, Turpin was hanged and buried (twice) in York and his gravestone bears both his assumed name, John Palmer and his real name, Richard Turpin. Discover the whole story of Turpin, the Gregory Gang and the shooting near High Beech, here.
