User contributed information about Shenton Bend
<span class="medium"><p>Dated versions of canal guides may refer to the former 'Battlefield Moorings' just west of this winding hole. <p>For many years, this location was reputedly the site of Richard III’s death at the Battle of Bosworth and was included in a history trail from the nearby Heritage Centre. A commemorative plaque to that effect and an information point were erected on land leased by the Battlefield Trust, which also supported the offside mooring provision. <p>Subsequent analysis concluded in 2009 that the true location was about a mile further south, so the trail was re-worked, the information point / plaque were removed and the lease concluded. The moorings were closed by British Waterways, at the landowner’s request, in March 2012. <p>Although towpath mooring remains, Sutton Cheney Visitor Moorings and towpath mooring at Bridge 34A, are better places for access to the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre. The bridge is also now the easiest place from which to access Shenton station.</span>
