Guy Fawkes

Hereabouts lived the parents of Guy Fawkes of Gunpowder Plot fame, who was baptised in St. Michael-le-Belfrey Church in 1570.

Fawkes was arrested in the early hours of 5th November 1605 after being discovered keeping watch over 36 barrels of gunpowder in the cellars beneath the House of Lords.

Oooo, that is so exciting. I would love to see that. I must look back at my photos of York. The name St Michael-le-Belfrey sounds familiar. Okay, I looked, it wasn't one of the churches I photographed apparently.
