The Fight for Bosworth

The fight to prevent development encroaching upon one of our famous battlefields is about making a stand for our heritage. As I said in an interview with The Times:

‘This is one of the defining moments in our national history. For the first time, battlefield discoveries allow us to get a sense of where Richard III launched his fatal cavalry charge, and where he ended up. Richard got close enough to kill Henry Tudor’s standard bearer, so he was a few feet away from winning the battle…The proposed development is a substantial intrusion upon the most important part of the site.’

And with The Independent:

‘It is vital that we protect the integrity of the battlefield – for ourselves and the generations that come after us.’
