Tomb Cloth at Wapley

The above picture is taken from an article by Alexandra Womack, on Friday, 2nd October 2015. The churchgoers of Wapley are preparing to mark the 600th year since Agincourt. The church of St Peter contains the tomb of Henry V’s standard bearer, Sir John Codrington. Bob Pritchard, of the Richard III Society, researched and embroidered the heraldic shields on Sir John’s beautiful tomb cloth.

“On Sunday, October 25, exactly 600 years since the famous battle in 1415, the church will open to the public for a range of re-enactments as well as medieval entertainment. There will be knights and men at arms in full costume, a medieval encampment, displays and demonstrations of falconry, archery, and medieval food and medicine. Visitors will also be able to enjoy storytelling, medieval music, bell ringing, a stained glass making demonstration, bee keeping and mead making. Refreshments will be available.”
