Much has been written about Whittington Castle. One story concerns Fulk (II) Fitzwarine whose father was Lord of the castle. Fulk II grew up in the court of King Henry II along with the King's sons and notably did not get on well with John. On his father's death, Fulk II became Lord of the castle but, on becoming King, John took Whittington Castle from Fulk and gave it to Morys de Powis. Fulk then embarked on a long series of adventures across the country. Many of these involve 'robbing from the rich and giving to the poor'. There are more than just a few similarities between Fulk's life and that of the legendary 'Robin Hood' and some have suggested that it was he who inspired the stories. Thus the cache name 'Shropshire's Robin Hood'. More can be read about this and other stories at the following link:
Here you will find among the pages suggested links to the Holy Grail and Merlin's prophesies which may have been in reference to Fulk Fitz Warine.
The original cache contents are 'Captain Morgan's Gold Coin TB; Fridge magnet; Bookmark; Pen; Shropshire Badge; Child's Book; Other assorted items.
There are several events held around the castle and we will post logs to let you know when these are. So make sure and check them out before you go. Also, beware of muggles.
