Knights Templar

Rothley Temple is a manor house on the edge of Rothley village in Leicestershire, which was once home to the infamous Knights Templar.
The Babington family acquired the house in the 16th century, and the MP for Leicester from 1800-1818, Thomas Babington, lived there until his death in 1837.
He met leading abolitionist William Wilberforce at Cambridge University and they spent much time at Rothley Temple working together on the Bill to Abolish the Slave Trade.
He became devoted to the antislavery cause and helped work on the Bill to Abolish the Slave Trade through collecting data, providing evidence and offering his first-hand experience.
The room where the abolitionists worked has been named after him to mark his contribution: The Macauley Room.
