  • A number of people were burned for practising their Faith slightly differently from the main religion of the Day. Most countries have moved on since those days. There's missing tarmac on Broad Street 2 mins walk away where the 'heretics' met their end. No doubt they're in Heaven while their persecutors are in a very hot place! For foreign visitors Magdalen is pronounced Maudlin. (It's a southern thing)
  • It's a good place to sit and have a bite to eat...but be a lot nicer without the dirty unwashed hobos who also like to hang around
  • Nice views if you don't mind the pigeons

  • Just situated at the road junction and could be easily missed as it was not outstanding.
