Bosworth Battlefield

England: 1400’s – for almost 30 years a vicious civil war raged across England. Many thousands of people laid down their lives as two families, the House of York and the House of Lancaster fought for the throne of England. Each believed they had the better claim to the throne. On 22 August 1485, in the heart of rural Leicestershire, two armies faced each other; neither side could have known how important this fight would be. This decisive Battle of Bosworth would witness the death of the King and the birth of a dynasty that would last for 122 years. It was the last time that an English King was killed in battle. King Richard III had ruled the land for only two years and one month when he found his claim to the throne challenged by Henry. Henry started the day as the Earl of Richmond and ended the day being crowned nearby, becoming Henry VII.

An indication of it quality is that it has twice hosted the Curtis Cup team in preparation for their clash with the USA and has been the venue for the English Boys Championship. Long drivers may find the course a bit short, but they must be straight because of the tree-lined fairways. The seventh is a good hole as is the par five eighth but the 168 yard par three 15th w...

Charnwood Museum is one such spot. The famous Ladybird books originate from Loughborough so there's an exhibit and memorabilia on that subject plus information about the world's oldest multi-cellular fossil Charna discovered by a local schoolboy.
