    Wellington – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. The Iron Duke
      Yes, Wellington is associated with the Duke of Wellington, he was given the title of Marquess of Wellington during success against the French in Spain and became Duke around the time of the Battle of Waterloo. But he only visited the town once.
    2. Crusoe-fied
      Author Daniel Defoe (whose most famous work was Robinson Crusoe) passed through the town but gave a less than flattering account in his Tour thro’ the whole island of Great Britain in 1720. He described Wellington as being full of beggars “We were glad to ride as fast as we could through the town to get clear of them”.
    3. Monmouth Rebellion
      The Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 failed in part when Monmouth’s “secret” troop movements were revealed at the Half Moon pub in Wellington’s North St, which lead to defeat at the Battle of Sedgemoor. So if you are thinking of planning a secret rebellion, it’s probably best not to do it in a pub.
    4. Its Great!
      Well, Wellington is believed to once have belonged to Alfred the Great, arguably England’s greatest king who has strong ties to the area.
    5. In The World
      Yes, little Wellington is actually home to a record breaker, the tallest 3-sided obelisk in the world, the Wellington Monument.
    6. Popham
      At one point, Wellington’s most influential resident was Sir John Popham, Lord Chief Justice of England he presided over the trials of Mary Queen of Scots, Sir Walter Raleigh and Guy Fawkes.
    7. Doomsday
      Wellington was recorded in the Doomsday book as “Weolingtun” and at the time had two mills and 17 cattle.
