Details

The Battle of Bosworth (or Bosworth Field) was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Fought on 22 August 1485, the battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, by his victory became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle. Historians consider Bosworth Field to mark the end of the Plantagenet dynasty, making it a defining moment of English and Welsh history.
It goes with saying this site is steeped in history and a truly active area. We have caught some amazing pictures on these walks that cannot be explained away. The use of ghost detection equipment i.e KII meters has demonstrated on a regular basis that this area is extremely active.
Light anomalies seen with the naked eye and physical sensations of being pushed and grabbed are common experiences and the feeling of being followed and watched is difficult to shake off. This ghost walk is medium lead and an historian is also present. Haunted Heritage Guests will have the use of paranormal detection equipment throughout the walk. Please come suitably dressed as the walk is open to the elements. Refreshments will be served at the end of the walk.
