Knightlow Hill - The Wroth Stone


Not sure of any dispute about antiquity? The Wroth Silver Ceremony has been held at this stone on the autumnal quarter day since at least 1170. It is an administrative 'rent collection' event where the local parishes pay their dues to The Duke of Buchleuch (formerly the Crown). Please see website for more information and you can buy our book 'Wroth Silver Today' Possibly the book described in the first posting but not published by the Strettin parish historical society. Here we describe it as a tumulus (round barrow) on the top of Knightlow Hill on which there is the remains of a Mediaeval cross. Look forward to seeing you (hope not too early in the morning for you all, but fortify yourself with a glass of hot rum and milk before). Meet the Mayor of Rugby etc. Join us for breakfast after and hear the history from David Eadon. If you have unresolved questions let me know and I will add to the FAQ section of the website.
