Granny`s GravePrint Page
A monument commemorates the first European woman buried in the area. Information on the monument states that the woman is Mrs James Raddlestone, who reputedly lived with her crayfish-catching husband in a tent nearby, and was buried here in 1848. Research has been undertaken and Granny's name has found to be Agnes Ruttleton.
The headstone was erected by the local council in 1904, with the present structure around the grave erected in 1933.
