The Battle of BOSWORTH
The battle of Bosworth, fought on the 22nd August 1485, is one of the best known and one of the most influential of English battles. It saw perhaps the most dramatic of military reversals in English history. A rebel force defeated a royal army more than twice its size leaving Richard III, the last Plantagenet king, dead on the field and placing Henry VII on the throne as the first of a new, Tudor dynasty. The battle itself was fought not far from Stoke Golding, a nearby village, some two miles or so south west of Ambion Hill, the ‘traditional’ location of the action. We are located just a few miles from the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.
