Whittington's birthplace?
Whittington's birthplace?
This is the church of St Michael in the village of Sollers Hope. The church dates from the 14th and 15th centuries and there is an earlier feature in the form of a slab showing the incised figure of a knight, thought to be from the early 13th century. An ancestor of the Whittington family lived in the village and married a woman of a local family. This has given rise to a tale that Dick Whittington was born here but, by all accounts, he was born at Pauntley SO 7428 in Gloucestershire. Another Gloucestershire village, Coberley SO 9615 also claims a connection with him. Time photo taken not available.
