Ursula Kempe was executed in St. Osyth, England in 1582

Just spent the Easter hols near St Osyth (the less said about Haven Holidays the better - suffice to say we spent all our waking hours away from the "resort" in Colchester or St Osyth - call me a snob, but it's really not my scene, you know?) - and we saw "The Cage" (a Tudor/Elizabethan building - the height of the door was not much greater than my 10 year old daughter, who's about 145cm) where Ursula Kempe was allegedly held before her execution. Again, allegedly, rivets were driven through her ankles, knees and wrists, to prevent her getting out of her grave -

Incidentally, St Osyth Priory was also allegedly the lair of a ginormous dragon...
