One of the 25 Baron Towns to enforce Magna Carta

One of the 25 baronial towns involved in the inception of the Magna Carta, Trowbridge will be celebrating the 800th anniversary in 2015 of its signing: the Trowbridge Town Council website will contain all of the local stories and news items surrounding this commemoration.

To celebrate the 800 year anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta and Trowbridge’s unique Magna Carta heritage, Trowbridge Museum has agreed to the loan of an impressive Henry de Bohun maquette (a photograph of the impressive six foot plaster maquette can be seen on the left) from Canterbury Museums Service. Henry de Bohun was elected to be one of the twenty-five barons to enforce Magna Carta.
