Richard III in Bridport
It was whilst on a visit to York that Arthur Woodgate discovered the link between Bridport and Richard the Third, popularly known as “The King in the Car Park.”
Now plans are afoot to commemorate the visit of the much maligned monarch. In the riverside gardens by East Bridge an information notice board identifies the location of the Priory of St John the Baptist just across the road, but gives no indication that this is where Richard is considered to have stayed.
“Nor will you find any mention of this anywhere in Bridport,” commented Mr Woodgate, “but I’m pleased to say that this is about to change.”
