From correspondent Andy McDonald, a fascinating set of photos in response to an old article, "In Search of Greyfriars, from the American Branch website. Richard III's body was reputed to have been buried in the churchyard at Greyfriars prior to (possibly) having been exhumed and thrown in the nearby River Soar.
Comments on the locations and their significance are welcome. And many thanks to Andy for reaching out to us.
From Andy's email:
- , the Catholic Church of St Martin (numerous images)
- (whitewashed wood framed building very close to the cathedral) Dating from 1390.
- Greyfriars (street level view)
- at Greyfriars, showing stonework (age unknown)
- Various street level photos of Greyfriars and Friar Lane as well as New
