KETT'S REBELLION

A new information sign has been unveiled at Kett's Oak on the Hethersett to Wymondham Road.

The oak traditionally represents the place at which the Wymondham and Hethersett rebels met before marching on Norwich in July 1549 in protest at the enclosure of land.

The new plaque provides information about the site and the rebellion and is mounted on an oak post.

The sign was formally unveiled by Dr John Alban, Norfolk County Archivist, on June 22nd, 2006.

Among those present were Vic Redington whose father John Plumstead wrote his Cambridge University dissertation on the rebellion and Adrian Hoare who analysed the rebellion is his book "An Unlikely Rebel."

An article on the rebellion will appear here shortly.
