Just inside the nearby Christchurch park is a memorial to nine "Ipswich martyrs" who were burnt at the stake for their adherence to the protestant faith, as part of the Marian persecutions. Two of the martyrs, Alexander Gooch (of Woodbridge) and Alice Driver (of Grundisburgh) were executed on 4th November 1558, just two weeks before Queen Mary's death.
