Queer Injustice Prostest at The Stonewall Inn in New York City Part 2. July 15th, 2016.

Thatched Cottage, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire, England.

This pretty little market town lies deep in the heart of Leicestershire’s rich countryside. The nearby Bosworth Field is renowned as the site for the decisive battle of the ‘War of the Roses’, between Richard III and Henry Tudor; who defeated Richard to become Henry VII of England.

Richard III stayed the night at the White Boar Inn in Market Bosworth, preceding the Battle of Bosworth, and hid £300 in a false bottom of his bed. As he was killed in battle the next day no one returned to collect it, so it remained undiscovered until the reign of Elizabeth l. The then landlord discovered the money and became rich, but ironically, following the landlord’s death, his widow was then murdered on account of her wealth.

The surrounding streets are filled with pretty thatched cottages and Georgian houses and in the town there is an award winning fish and chip shop, excellent tea shop, and many old pubs and coaching inns.
