As tourists wander around Westminster absorbing the history of years, they stumble across King Charles 1st and Oliver Cromwell locked in each others’ sight for eternity.

It is often thought that Cromwell’s statue – erected in 1899 to a design by Sir William Thornycroft –  is avoiding the gaze of the Monarch he condemned to death. However, the bust of King Charles I was donated to the Church by The Society of King Charles the Martyr in 1956 – so sadly not true!
