Word: queen
pLACE-NAME: Kinlet

Kinlet is an unusual name, and it means ‘royal portion of land’. We believe that in 1066, before the Normans arrived, Queen Edith – Edward the Confessor’s wife – owned the land there, so perhaps she was the queen associated with Kinlet.

Helpful story hints: Who do you think was the queen associated with Kinlet? In your story, is the queen called Edith, or something else? Why was this place important to the queen? What did the queen use this land for? Did she live here, or just visit? What did she look like? Was she a kind queen?
