Felder the Hunter is celebrated in legend in parts of Ruddlestone as the slayer of the Great Boar of Lein.

It is said in Wendeford in Ruddlestone that:

years ago the surrounding hamlets and farmsteads were terrorized by a monstrous wild boar which lived within the borders of the Forest of Lein. Eventually it was tracked down by Felder the Hunter and his pack of legendary hounds, was trapped in a staked pit and slain.[1]

It may well be this episode which is celebrated in a tapestry in the nearby Cleeve Manor: the tapestry, which "covers half of one wall and shows a man with a pack of hounds fighting a huge wild boar ... depicts part of the legend of the Great Boar of Lein, when the monster was finally caught and killed by a brave hunter."[2]
