The 'Martyrs' Memorial' - Dartford, Kent
The monument is known locally as the Martyrs' Memorial (unveiled in 1888) and commemorates three of Kent's protestant martyrs burned at the stake in 1555. One of the martyrs, a local linen weaver named Christopher Waid, was publicly burned at Dartford Brent on 17th July 1555.

This is the second Martyrs' Memorial to occupy the site. The first was erected in the 1850's but suffered extensive erosion.
