The Six Templars in detail…
This pub takes its name from The Poor Fellow Soldiers of Jesus Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, popularly known as the 'Knights Templar', one of the first and most famous of the Christian orders. Founded for the protection of pilgrims visiting the Holy Land (Jerusalem), the order existed for approximately two centuries.
The Templars had several houses in Hertfordshire. When the order was suppressed, in 1307, six Templars were arrested in Dinsley, near Hitchin. Four of them were imprisoned for six months in Hertford Castle. The local newspaper has published several stories about the Templars in Hertford, who, apparently, claimed that there is a network of tunnels under the town - and this is somehow connected with the quest for the Holy Grail.
