Henry Tudor landed at Mill Bay on 7th August 1485 (534 years ago). He marched from here to Bosworth to ultimately take the Crown at the Battle of Bosworth from Richard III and this was the start of the Tudor Dynasty. He was only 28!
We have hosted a lovely gentleman called Dean today who is literally walking in Henry’s footsteps and is making the trek from Mill Bay to Bosworth. He plans to arrive in Bosworth 534 years t the day that Henry arrived. What a fabulous journey to make. He is walking for two purposes, he studied History at Oxford and concluded that Henry VII was our greatest Monarch and having just retired, felt he has both the time and fitness to pay homage to his great achievement. Dean is also Type 1 Diabetic, so his walk will also raise about £2,000 for Diabetes UK-what a great thing to do!
