Trowbridge Baron comes home!

Monday January 12 saw the home coming of Magna Carta Baron Henry De Bohun to Trowbridge and he will be part of a new exhibitition at the town museum in February.

De Bohun was one of the 25 Barons elected to enforce Magna Carta and as such his bronze statue resides in the House of Lords, along with other Bishops and barons that are associated with the sealing of this great charter.

His headquarters were in Trowbridge - making this town one of only two in the South West that can claim to have their very own Magna Carta baron.

The plaster 'maquette' was used as the mould from which his bronze statue was cast and Trowbridge Museum has been lucky enough to secure its loan from Canterbury Museum's Service.

It will take centre stage in Trowbridge museum's exhibition that launches at the end of February.
