The two lodges, which are by the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, are situated to the south-east of Runnymede Meadows.
Magna Carta, which means ‘Great Charter’, was sealed at Runnymede on 15th June 1215. This was an agreement between King John and his barons and clergy which, for the first time, made the monarch subject to the laws of the land. It also gave free men the right to justice and a fair trial. Over the subsequent 800 years it has influenced many constitutional documents including the United States’ Bill of Rights.
Runnymede today is a memorial landscape to the on-going struggle for democracy and liberty.
