Last night the BBC’s The One Show broadcast a feature about David Wilson East Midlands The Lanterns development in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire where a supposed medieval tomb was buried. Forming part of an ornate 100 year old water feature, the stone artefact was brought to David Wilson’s attention by Barwell resident and former gardener Reg Colver. Thinking it could be the lost coffin of King Richard III, which is recorded to have been used as a container for water, Reg then approached the Battle of Bosworth Heritage Centre and the rest as they say is history!
After learning about the find, the Unsworth Sugden PR team got in touch with The One Show and managed to organise a visit with Dan Snow… and we’re now on the case to support David Wilson East Midlands in their bid to arrange visits from local children who will be able to see this exciting artefact for themselves before it is donated to the Heritage Centre next year.
