The Rufus stone was erected to mark the spot where King William Rufus was shot. The inscription reads: "Here stood the Oak Tree, on which an arrow shot by Sir Walter Tyrell at a stag, glanced and struck King William the second, surnamed Rufus, on the breast, of which he instantly died, on the second day of August anno 1100."
