Where is there a marker to this legend?

Sister Kirkes - Withernsea 2


A LOCAL LEGEND tells of two sisters who argued over the style of a church that they were building; one wanted a tower, the other wanted a spire. They argued so much that they eventually built separate churches.

But where in Holderness is this commemorated? 

Carol got this right – It’s in Withernsea!
