The large plaque set into this traffic island at the junction of Edgware Road and Bayswater Road marks the location of the infamous 'Tyburn Tree', a gallows which was the primarily place of public executions for London. The first recorded execution at Tyburn took place in 1196, and in 1571 the 'tree' was erected. This was a gallows allowing multiple hangings at once. The Tyburn Tree stood until 1779, and the plaque marks what is believed to be the location of the gallows.
