Welcome to Wyndriche

Welcome to the Canton of Wyndriche, a branch of the SCA under the East Kingdom’s Barony of Endewearde. For many years residents in the southern region of the Barony of Endewearde had expressed interest in forming a distinct group that could work together to bring more opportunities for participation in this medieval hobby of ours known as the Society for Creative Anachronism. During the summer of 2013 the incipient Canton of Windridge (Wyndriche) was formed as a smaller SCA group within the Barony of Endewearde’s borders. Residents of the new canton have selected a proposed name, Wyndriche, and are in the process of submitting a heraldic device (coat of arms) to the SCA College of Heralds to represent their group. Lord Otto Gottlieb, Seneschal of the Barony of Endewearde, has prepared a map of the incipient Canton of Wyndriche.
