Next door in St Michael &All Angels Church, there is an exhibition telling the whole story of the recent discovery of the chapel, which had been closed at the Reformation, demolished and long forgotten. The amazing fact that our famous Easter Monday Bottle Kicking starts on the very spot with no one aware of what was below their feet!
