Rothley Temple

Rothley Temple is a chapel in Rothley, Leicestershire associated with the Knights Templar. Records show that the Templars were already in Rothley when King John gave them five librates of land in 1203. Further donations were acquired between 1218 and 1219, though it would seem that a preceptory was not established by the Order at Rothley until around 1231. Minor donations were given by the Rothley Templars to directly support the Orders fighting forces at Acre in the Holy Land.
