Edward I, whilst on his way to war against the Scots, died on the marshes near Burgh, and his corpse lay at the village's 12th century church until its eventual removal to Westminster Abbey. There is an impressive monument on the marshes erected in 1685 to mark the place where he died. It is 1 1/4 miles NNW of the village, is signposted and can be reached on foot.
