Martyrs’ Field

Down East Hill, once connected to the Lower High Street, you’ll pass the East Stour Flour Mill, which opened in 1901 and was a key employer in the town until it closed in 1972.

Crossing Mace Lane, you’ll come to an entrance to Queen Mother’s Park known as Martyrs’ Field. ‘The Martyrs’ Seat’, which was erected in 1974 commemorates those who were executed for heresy against the Catholic Church under the reigns of Henry VIII and ‘Bloody’ Mary I.
