Remembering Thomas Becket

St. Thomas Becket was murdered on December 29, 1170 and on the very spot where he was killed (so they think!) you will find a burning candle

Interesting bit of history and a nice memorial, whether it's the correct spot or not.

The CDP portal says it's your birthday today. I hope you have a wonderful day, Rose!

It's a fascinating story. It must be interesting to live in the town where all that history happened.
