Chipperfield Evening W.i.

19th of June 2002

At the meeting on 17 April, Richard Boustred gave an illustrated talk on the history of the Royal Palace at Kings Langley. Originally a Manor House dating back to the time of the Norman Conquest, the site was purchased by Queen Eleanor and enlarged over a period of time to become a palace which, during the time of the ‘Black Death’, became the prime residence of the King and was the seat of government. A Priory was also built on the site and a remnant of this building is still in use today.
