Richard III’s Cortege Route is Announced
The King Richard in Leicester website has just announced the details of Richard III's last journey, the route his cortege will take, from the University of Leicester to Leicester Cathedral next March. The details are as follows...
On Sunday 22nd March 2015 - In the late morning, the hearse will leave the University of Leicester and go to Fenn Lane Farm, reputedly the site of King Richard’s death, and then on to the parish church of Dadlington, where some of those who died at the Battle of Bosworth are buried, and the parish church of Sutton Cheney, where Richard is said to have taken his final Mass on the eve of the battle. There will then be a short ceremony at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre in the early afternoon, led by the Rt Revd Tim Stevens, Bishop of Leicester. The cortege will then make its way to Leicester, via Market Bosworth, Newbold Verdon and Desford, and enter the city via Bow Bridge, where it will be greeted by the City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, and the Lord Mayor, Councillor John Thomas.
A horse-drawn hearse will then carry Richard III's remains from Bow Bridge to Leicester Cathedral where the hearse will be met by the Very Revd David Monteith, Dean of Leicester. Dr Richard Buckley, lead archaeologist of the dig carried out by the University of Leicester, will give the Ministry of Justice licence, which was granted to the University for the remains of the King, to the Dean of Leicester. The remains will then be taken into the cathedral and an evening service of Compline will take place and a sermon preached by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster.
Richard III's remains will rest at the Cathedral until Thursday 26th March, when they will be buried at a special service.
