A Photo Tour of the Tom Hickathrift Story

Photos by Nicky Stockman, January 2014

Tom Hickathrift threw the boulder to mark the spot where he should be buried. It hit the wall of Tilney All Saints Church. His gravestone, approximately 8ft long is still there. The village sign of Tilney All Saints depicts Tom with the wheel and axle he used to fight the ogre and keep the Fenland safe.

Marshland St James is a village on The Smeeth. Tom is said to have fought the ogre here. It is thought that the ogre was buried in the filed behind the primary school!

Tom is said to have moved the church tower away from the church in West Walton.
