    5 Quickfire Wantage Facts

    1. It’s Grrrrrrreat!
      The town’s biggest claim to fame is it was the birthplace of Alfred the Great in 849AD. Arguably Britain’s greatest king, it was Alfred who created the idea of a single England (which until then was made up of several smaller kingdoms), as well as being the leader who stopped the Vikings conquering the country.
    2. Wantage & Robin Hood
      The Fitzwarin family were prominent figures through the history of the town. One colourful figure was Fulk Fitzwarin who was the childhood bestie of the Future King John. When the Fitzwarin family home, Wittington Castle, was stolen from them, King John refused to help. The spat that ensued between the former friends saw Fulk become an outlaw. He lived in forestland and attacked rich nobles and in particular the Sheriff of Shropshire. It is quite likely that it was Fulk who was the genesis of the Robin Hood legend.
    3. Oh Yes He Did!
      Eventually the Fitzwarins were moving to Wantage again having regained their ancestral home. One later descendent born in 1440 was Ivo Fitzwarin, a former soldier who became a successful London merchant. His daughter Alice Fiztwarin married the future Mayor of London, his name was Dick Wittington. Oh yes it was!
    4. Murderously Good
      How good looking is Wantage? It’s deadly! So attractive in fact, that it was been one of the primary locations for TV’s Midsomer Murders.
    5. Poetic License
      The Poet Laureate John Betjeman spent a number of years living in Wantage. Although he wasn’t a huge fan of Slough, Betjeman was a fan of Wantage and wrote some far more flattering poems of the town he made his home. Today there is a park and streets named in his honour.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.
