I was borne in this ltttle village Wraysbury in Bucks before the 2nd World War ll. The Magna Charta was signed by King John on Magna Charta Island in 1215. There is a lane leading off the main road called Magna Carta lane which leads to the island which is just off the River Thames. This charta was not signed on Runneymede, Surrey which most historians believe. The Americans had ideas to say it was signed on Runnymead and a plaque was raised by their help with our government.This was an idea to make more money in car parking next to the R.A.F. memorial .I have a full history of events regarding the signing of the Magna Charta.
