  1. There is one fort in the district named the Rathorn fort. There are many stories told about it and this is one of them.
    It is supposed that about a hundred yards east of the fort there was a castle and in this castle there lived an Abbot. This Abbot was the Superior of a company of monks. In this fort there lived a very high chief who had an only daughter. This girl got from her father a frieze suit and got the weight of herself of gold.
