Burnt cakes n all that!

By Mozzytheboy
Lived just a few miles away from Burrow Mump for about fifteen years and to-date have never made the visit. With painkillers on board I thought well why the heck not? Known affectionately as King Alfred's Church. Legend has it , that it was during this period King Alfred was given shelter by a peasant woman on the Somerset Levels and Moors. Unaware of his identity she left him to watch some cakes she had left cooking on the fire. Preoccupied with the problems of his kingdom, Alfred accidentally let the cakes burn and when she returned Alfred was taken to task by the woman. When realising the king's identity, the woman apologised profusely, but Alfred insisted that he was the one who needed to apologise.
