Bishop Hooper's Monument

Bishop Hooper's Monument

Built in 1862 to commemorate the site of the execution of the second Bishop of Gloucester.

Under the reign of the Catholic Queen Mary I, Bishop John Hooper refused to renounce his protestant faith and was burnt at the stake in 1555.

When workmen were digging foundations for the monument, a charred wooden stump was found.  This is now on display in the Folk Museum.
