Tyburn Jack robs another stagecoach.

An avenue lined with trees, remnants of a small wood.


Definitely not to be confused with serial killer Peter Pyke of Pyke Auto Repair, this arcadian avenue takes its name from the turnpike that once stood on this spot, charging a toll for all travellers entering Malton from the country - a sign of how much Malton has grow since the 18th century.

The turnpike was famously leapt by highwayman Tyburn Jack and his horse Brown Betsy, as he fled from the forces of the law (in those days these constituted an old, fat man on a donkey). Tyburn ended up being hanged from the gallows at nearby Justice Walk. A crowd of 10,000 attended the hanging, many of them cheering for him.
