Geocache Description:

Another cache in the popular village sign series


According to various text, the name ‘WRETTON’ is derived from ‘WIRETON’, meaning a settlement by a stream of running water however, other sources quote early records using the name ‘WROTTON’ [earliest notation circa 1198] meaning an enclosure [from ton or tun] where ‘crosswort’, a medicinal plant is grown [from Wroett].

It is certain that the name ‘WRETTON’ has ancient origins and although not specifically named in the Doomsday Book, the settlement was certainly assessed under various different manorships.
