Recently found near the estate of High Ercall Hall, Telford, which during the English Civil War was besieged 3 times in-between 1644 and 1646. Exceedingly rare and much as the day it was dropped.
Interestingly High Ercall Hall was featured on a episode of the Channel 4 series Time Team, were they attempted to signs of the original building that was bombarded and destroyed during the third and final besiegement of High Ercall in 1646.
