Bridport’s pride in its link with Richard III….

bridport-street

>>>On 5th November 1483 King Richard the Third stayed overnight in Bridport on his way to Exeter to deal with the remnants of the rebellion led by the Duke of Buckingham<<<

>>>Bridport Mayor Sandra Brown said: “I have been interested in
Richard and his unfair bad press ever since school. My history teacher put most of the blame on poor old Shakespeare, who was only keeping in with those Tudors.<<<

Things are afoot in Dorset to mark Richard’s visit to lovely Bridport. He may not have been there for long, but that he did is to be marked by the town. Good old Bridport – my father’s home, and well known to me!
