    Runnymede was the location for the sealing of the Magna Carta by King John on the fifteenth of June 1215, with the 1225 version becoming the definitive version.

    Runnymede is still used today as a site for significant commemoration and is the location of the Magna Carta memorial (erected 1957), the John F. Kennedy memorial (1965), the Commonwealth Air Forces memorial (1953), and the Fairhaven Memorial Lodges (1931).
