Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
A striking modern sculpture marks the place where Thomas Becket was murdered on 29th December 1170. The knights Richard Brito, Hugh de Moreville, Reginald FitzUrse and William de Tracy confronted Becket, bursting into the church and calling for him through the darkness. Becket actually managed to shake them off as they tried to seize him, but eventually Brito struck him on the head so forcefully that the tip of his sword shattered on the stone floor.
