In their little boat, steered and protected by guardian angels, St Frideswide and two of her sisters escape up the River Thames to Bampton, Oxfordshire. The pious St Frideswide was escaping the unwanted attentions of King Algar of Leicester. The angel rowed the ladies to a swineherd's hut in Bampton Woods where they hid from Algar and his henchmen for three years. They eventually returned safely to Oxford and the safety of their monastery. St Frideswide died there on October 19th 727 AD and her elaborate thirteenth century shrine can now be visited in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford.
