Trotton
A village in the valley of the River Rother. Crossing the river is the old Medieval Bridge, built in the late 14th century by Lord Thomas Camoys. A memorial to Camoys and his second wife stands in the superb parish church of St George. Camoys served with Henry V in his wars on the continent, and commanded the left flank of the English armies at the Battle of Agincourt. Beside him lies an effigy of Elizabeth Mortimer, widow of Henry 'Hotspur' Percy.
The ancient church boasts some beautiful medieval wall paintings and the oldest known example of a full length funerary brass to a woman, that of Margaret Camoys, who died in 1310.
