when i was at school i can remember quite clearly Wilfred Pickles broadcasting a programme about Featherstone on the wireless (no tv,s themdays) and he said the name Featherstone came about was.A king on his travels died on the spot where North Featherstone church is ,and where buried him they covered his grave with four stones hense Featherstone. I wonder if the B.B.C. still have this recording in their archives.
