Knightlow Hill - The Wroth Stone


The tumulus is about 30 feet square, with sides running parallel to the road, having a large fir-tree growing at each angle, of which the people around say that the four trees represent four knights who were killed and buried there. This, however, can only be conjecture, as the trees are but the same age as those in the "Avenue" which were planted in 1740 by John, Duke of Montague.
