Stephen Langton Trail

'At Runnymeade on the 15th of June 1215, Archbishop Langton was in attendance as one of the King's Commissioners, along with Hugh of Wells who he had consecrated as Bishop of Lincoln in 1209, as King John sealed Magna Carta under pressure from the Barons. Copies were made to be sent across the land, including one inscribed "Lincolnia" that still remains in Lincoln today.
The Stephen Langton Trail is therefore a fitting honour to Lincolnshire's connections to Magna Carta - a chance maybe to walk in the footsteps of those involved in its signing and to see the document for yourself.'
