Betty's Grave is a rural crossroads near Cirencester. It is named as being the final resting place of Elizabeth Bastre - however, there are various explanations for what Elizabeth Bastre really was since she was buried here in 1786. The options are: a witch that was hanged or burned at the stake; a suicide; murder victim; a woman who died from exposure; or a thief hanged for steeling sheep (source: Great British Ghost Tour). An alternative theory is that she was a gypsy woman who lived beyond her 100th birthday (Source: Daily Telegraph)
