    5 Quirky Facts About Ludgershall

    1. King of the Castle
      Originally built by the Sheriff of Wiltshire, Ludgershall Castle soon attracted royal attention and became the property of the crown around 1103 AD under the reign of Henry I. At this time the town and castle stood at the edge of a forest and the castle became a popular hunting stop for King John and his son Henry III who visited the castle 21 times. Queen Matilda also stayed in the castle during the Anarchy (her bitter fight to take the thrown from King Stephen). However it fell out of favour and by the 16th century had either crumbled away or been pulled down (the stone used elsewhere). It’s still an impressive location and takes around 15 minutes to walk around the entire site.
    2. Doomed!
      Unlike some larger places including London, Ludgershall was considered important enough to be included in the Domesday Book. So yes, while cities Bristol and Liverpool (also not in the Domesday Book) might like to think they’re big and historic, that they’ve got The Beatles and Wallace and Gromit, Ludgershall was possibly more important in medieval times (yeah, take that Bristol!).
    3. Kings Road
      It was the road used by kings connecting Marlborough and Winchester. Winchester was the former seat of the Kings of Wessex and still a very important location in Medieval times while Marlborough was one of the holiest towns in Britain. Ludgershall was a convenient stopping point along the way, especially for those royals that would rather be hunting and partying than attending church.
    4. WWII
      In 1939 the army expanded their training grounds around the area of Salisbury Plain. This brought them close to Tilbury and Ludgershall which became obvious location for camps. Ludgershall was used a great deal by the US army, in particular in the build up to D-Day.
    5. Rotten
      At one point, Ludgershall was a ‘rotten borough’. This was a term given to relatively small towns (the population would have been less than 2,000 in the 19th century), that had disproportionate parliamentary representation. The town/village at his time had 2 (two???) members of Parliament. With many landowners buying influence (or threatening their tenants with eviction if they didn’t vote for them) new laws were passed and many rotten boroughs left with no MP at all.
