Wigginton Common


During the English Civil War, Wigginton Common served as camp for some of Cromwell's troops. They used it as a base from where they could bombard Berkhamstead castle. There have been reports of Roundheads, seen on the common in the evening at twilight as the light begins to fade.

Ghosts of Cromwell's troops abound in Britain, the Civil War had a resounding impact on people living at the time. This may be reflected in the folk memory of events, which have become ghost stories. The only drawback to this argument is that there are many modern eye witness accounts.

Directions:
Wiginton common lies to the South of Tring. Off the A41.
