Bosworth Battlefield

Yesterday, we made a visit to Bosworth Battlefield, the site where King Richard III was to be the last of the Plantagenet line of monarchs. It was here that he was slain and the new King, Henry the VII became the new King of England, and started the Tudor Monarchy. 
Of course, this is completely thrilling for Mr Bee, who is completely obsessed with Kings and Queens at the moment, Richard III being his favourite of course, despite his Lancastrian background!

We headed off with a picnic and then let the boys do their thing.

 The view from Ambion Hill where Henry VII and his troops began their descent to the battlefields below.

A wonderful walk took us all around Ambion Hill, down to Shenton Railway Station where we had a look around the glass blowing studio. A big walk back to the car and the boys were so tired! We saw lots of animals and lots of beautiful views and had a thoroughly lovely day out!
