The Cornhill

In 1558, Alice Driver was arrested for not attending church, and explained that she preferred the Protestant faith. Her ears were cut off for insulting the Queen and she was tried for heresy. Despite a spirited and competent defence (which she did on her own as no one dared to help her for fear of being accused of sympathising with a heretic and thereby punished), she was burnt at the stake. Her ghost is still said to be seen in the area of the cornhill square.
