King Richards Well and Market Bosworth

King Richards Well and Market Bosworth

This well (bottom), with its curious pyramid of rough stones, is so called in memory of Richard III, who met defeat and death at the Battle of Bosworth, August 22, 1485. By this victory Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, finally established the ascendancy of the House of Lancaster over that of York, and secured the Crown of England and Wales for the Tudors. The battlefield is about three miles from Market Bosworth, on the road from Nuneaton to Burton. Sutton Lane (top) is part of the town, where Richard stayed.
