The Shrine of Edmund at Bury St Edmunds Abbey was a flourishing Pilgrimage site until 1539 when the Abbey was dissolved and the shrine destroyed.

She survives immortalised on the ceiling of the Queen's Audience Chamber at Windsor. A sort of triumph in the face of the many indignities she had to endure from her husband & many of his subjects.

Catherine de France died aged 35 at Bermondsey Abbey outside London but was later buried at the old Lady chapel Westminster Abbey .The Queen has no tomb just a Victorian Memorial marks the site of her burial,her coffin was also repaired by order of Queen Victoria as queen Catherine's mummified corpse had become somewhat of ghoulish attraction,Samuel Pepys, the famous diarist, saw the mummified remains in 1669 and records how he was allowed to kiss the queen!

I found this article on the Puritans destruction of Cheapside Cross in 1643

The destruction of images, objects and sacred buildings has a long history.

A very interesting read with much topical cultural relevance. The destruction at Cheapside happened during the Civil War of course. Charles had fled London the year before. Politics & religion, a noxious brew at any time.

This 14th century statue of St Margaret at St Andrew's Church, Fingringhoe, Essex was a little luckier but shows the fury of the Puritan iconoclasm.

Too many of these sorts of examples sadly, along with whitewashed walls & destroyed monasteries.

It makes the survival of the shrine of Edward the Confessor all the more remarkable.
