The town is destroyed at the beginning of the War of the Five Kings by raiders from the Westerlands. All of the inhabitants are killed. During the attack, girls of six and seven are raped and babes at the breast are cut in two while their mothers watch. The Battle at the Mummer's Ford takes place here when the force sent by Lord Eddard Stark to arrest Ser Gregor Clegane is intercepted by men from House Lannister, with heavy casualties.
