It is believed that Richard III attended mass at the church on the eve of the battle. The church is a short distance from the site of the battle. It is a place of pilgrimage for members of the Richard III Society who believe that the last of the Plantagenet kings has been unfairly pilloried by the victors at Bosworth Field - the Tudors.
