Mr Monkey in Southwark Cathedral

"They like their bright monuments, you know"

Mr Monkey inspecting monuments in the south transept Mr Monkey looking at the chapels in the retrochoir

Mr Monkey inspected the monuments in the south transept, noticing that many of them were brightly painted. One of the brightest was John Bingham, one of the 'Bargainers' who bought the church from James I in 1614. Then he scampered along to the retrochoir, the oldest complete part of the building, to look at the four chapels there. Under Mary, the trials of several Protestant martyrs took place here, and later, it was rented to a baker as a pig sty.
