Wikipedia has a page about Sutton Cheney Wharf

Sutton Cheney ( SUT-ən CHEE-nee) is a village in Leicestershire, England, close to the location of the Battle of Bosworth. The population (including Shenton) of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 538.

Sutton Cheney Wharf on the Ashby Canal gives access to the battlefield site. There is a small cafe, operated by 'The Ashby Trip', who specialise in offering narrowboat rides on the canal.

Sutton Cheney itself has two old coaching inns– the Royal Arms and the Hercules. St James' Church dates back to the 14th century. It is believed that Richard III attended Mass here for the last time in 1485 before the Battle of Bosworth.

The village's clergyman from 1960 to 1986, the Rev. E. R. Boston, was notable as a traction engine and light railway enthusiast and engineer who constructed the now-dismantled Cadeby Light Railway.

The famous eighteenth-century mathematician Thomas Simpson is buried here.

On Sunday 22 March 2015, the funeral cortège of King Richard III paused in Sutton Cheney en route to his burial in Leicester Cathedral.
