Temple Grafton, Warwickshire

Temple Grafton is a village and civil parish in the Stratford district of Warwickshire, England, situated about 4 miles east of Alcester and 14 miles West of the county town of Warwick. The place name is misleading, the Knights Templar never having any association with the place but owing to a naming error made in the time of Henry VIII the mistake has been perpetuated. During the reign of Richard I the estate in fact belonged to the Knights Hospitaller.
