St. Editha's Church, Tamworth : The interior
St. Editha's Church, Tamworth : The interior
A supplementary photograph of this fine old church. It is most likely that after his death at the Battle of Bosworth Field, the body of Richard III was dumped in the river at Leicester. However there are some that believe that an unidentified tomb here at Tamworth is his last resting place. There's a virtual tour of the church available here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
[Edit] Update on the fate of Richard III - He was discovered in September 2012 buried under a Car Park in Leicester - the site of the former Greyfriars Chapel where it seems he was hurriedly buried soon after the Battle of Bosworth Field.
So, sadly for Tamworth, its vaguely possible connection to the last of the Plantagenets has been scuppered. At least the town can console itself with its undoubted connection to one of the greatest kings of the Heptarchy - Offa.
