About to melt to death

Oxford Light has some lovely pictures of snowmen on the martyrs' memorial - there seem to be 10, is that the correct historical number - and if so did the builders realise? I'm only a heathen Cambridge graduate.
There's some nice pictures of the city on that blog, maybe I need a post enumerating a few city weblogs I have bookmarked?

Only three martyrs in fact - Cranmer, Latimer and Ridley. But if you light blues want to keep producing 'em, we'll keep burning 'em...

Legend had it (probably still does) that tour guides would tell tourists that the Martyrs' Memorial was the spire of a church in their honour, which had sunk into the ground.

I'll blame my wife (who was at St Hugh's) for confusing me - I'm easily confused!
