St Mary Axe Church

Categories: Religion

Building

Its full name was the Church of St Mary, St Ursula and her 11,000 Virgins. The origin of the nick name supposedly derives either from a sign of an axe over the east end of the church or from a relic that was used to behead Saint Ursula and all her virgins. The church survived the dissolution of the monasteries, but fell into decline and was eventually demolished.
