The Sudbury Head by John West



St Gregory’s church in Sudbury is said to be haunted by the ghost of Simon de Sudbury, Archbishop of Canterbury, who was murdered during the Peasant’s Revolt of 1381. His skull is still preserved in a case in the church. A truly grizzly exhibit!

His body was buried in Canterbury Cathedral. Some believe that his ghost is restless because he wishes his head to be reunited with his body.
