Overview

St Edward's Church is dedicated to Edward the Confessor, King of England until his death in 1066. The building is an amalgam of styles: a 12th-century tower, 14th-century arches and a 15th-century chancel. Two side aisles were also added to serve as chapels to Clare College and Trinity Hall. The 16th-century wooden pulpit, however, usurps the importance of the stones. From here Hugh Latimer preached the radical new Protestant theology, though when Catholic Mary Tudor ascended to the throne, Latimer was burnt at the stake.
