Manors, Baronies and Hunting Lodges

RAMBLERS EAST CHESHIRE GROUP

Manors, Baronies, and Royal Hunting Lodges –Our Historic Landscape

A Local History Talk by Judith Wilshaw

Local history is an engrossing subject, always something new to discover, never an end in sight.”

Judith comes from a long-established Marple family, and learnt about the history of the area by listening to relatives talking about their lives.  In 1992 she started running adult education classes in local history, and has continued to teach and give talks ever since.

After Duke William of Normandy had defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings on the 14th October 1066 he declared the Crown owned all land in England. Much of England was uncultivated woodland, the preserve of wild animals, and suitable areas were designated as royal hunting forests for the delectation of the king and noblemen. Mellor was in the Royal Forest of the Peak and Marple was in Macclesfield Forest. Judith’s talk looks at the history of the local manors, baronies and hunting forests we pass by and through on our walks throughout the year.
