For her feature this week, Margaret Mills looked back to the 14th century when the Essex village of Pleshey was a mightily bustling town.
Pleshey Castle at that time was owned by Thomas Duke of Gloucester who happened to be the uncle of King Richard II. Unfortunately it seems that the king was very jealous of the power and wealth of his uncle and took steps to redress this situation.
If you missed what Margaret said you can catch it all again here:-
See you again next week,
