The Flaming Sword

ADDRESS not known
Goodness known where this name came from!

A type of sword described throughout history in legends and myths, ablaze by magical or supernatural means, often seen as being symbolic, or a sword that has been coated with some type of combustible fuel, with the fuel being set on fire; this is most widely done for entertainment purposes in circuses, magic performances and other forms of display as a side act of sword swallowers, fire eating, etc.

According to the Bible, a Cherub (or the archangel Uriel in a some traditions) with a flaming sword was placed by God at the gates of Paradise after Adam and Eve were banished from it (Genesis 3:24).

In 1756, 4 soldiers were billeted here
