Higham Ferrers Charter week


This week we have been learning about the different charters of HIgham Ferrers, starting in 1251. Higham used to be called 'Hecham' and was owned by William de Ferrers in 1251.

We visited Chichele College, Bede House, the dovecote, St Mary's church and found out that Higham used to have a motte and bailey castle. The Charter group from the town council showed us around Higham and came into school sharing their research and providing us with informative powerpoints of the different charters (1251, Tudor, Stewart and Victorian).

We researched and drew castles, created our own motte and bailey castle and completed 'Miles' the medieval butcher scarecrow - which is being displayed this weekend at Chichele College.
