Waltham Abbey Church, Waltham Abbey, Epping Forest, Essex. King Harold, who stopped off here to pray on his way to the Battle of Hastings, fat lot of good that it did him, was likely buried here, although the location of his grave, which apparently was moved several times, is currently unknown. The bottom picture shows the location of the altar of the old Saxon Church (outside the current building) behind which Harold is said to have been buried. The present building dates from the 12th century, although there has been a church on this spot since the 7th century. The picture above the altar picture shows a Doom painting from the 15th century.
