Annotations on the Tower

This photo, taken during the recent pilgrimage of grace to the Tower in the "Beauchamp tower", shows inscriptions made by John Collins (a priest hung, drawn and quartered 9th Jan 1539), Blessed Thomas Abell (a priest and personal chaplain to Queen Catherine of Aragon, hung drawn and quartered, 30th July 1540), and Doctor Cook (Carmelite Prior of Doncaster, implicated in the Pilgrimage of Grace and hung, drawn and quartered 3rd Aug 1540).
I have discovered some interesting reserach made by a Yeoman Warder, Brian Harrison, and published on-line. Visit the following link:
