The Wellestream (The Wash) Legacy

A historical account of all the important events, happenings, conflicts and disasters happening in a triangle from Boston, Kings Lynn to Wisbech.  This area known as the South Lincs Treasure Triangle there was lost in 1216, 219 wagons from the baggage train of King John including 800 horses and oxon and 2300 people.

King John was not the only monarch to lose his treasure and baggage train in The Wash.  King Edward IV had the same occurrence in 1366, not only losing his treasure but his army also as he was defeated by The Great Earl of Warwick assisted by the rising tide.

King Edmund I or II or St Edmund (historians disagree as to which) lost his treasure and baggage train in the Wellestream nearer to Wisbech in the 10th Century.

Other known lost artefacts from this area are known as the “Lincolnshire Lost Treasure Triangle” by the natives, who were based at the lost Roman Forts of Lincolnshire at Northborough, Braceborough, Billingborough, Garrick, Walcott, Lynwood and Washingborough.
