    in 1464 Henry VI sought shelter with Ralph Pudsey at Bolton Hall after his defeat by the Yorkists at the battle of Hexham during the ?War of the Roses?. A somewhat strange haven, for Henry was a Lancastrian and in 1464 Bolton-by-Bowland was in the Craven District of Yorkshire!
    Legend has it that during the twelve months he spent at Bolton Hall, Henry is alleged to have found a natural spring by dowsing, and the well is still within the Bolton Estate.
