Knight of the Garter. He played a major role in Richard III’s rise and fall. He is also one of the primary suspects in the disappearance and presumed murder of the Princes in the Tower. His father, Humphrey, Earl Stafford, a Lancastrian, was killed at the first Battle of St Albans in when Henry was an infant, and his grandfather, the First Duke of Buckingham, another leading Lancastrian, was killed five years later, in He was recognized as Duke of Buckingham in and married the next year to the Queen’s sister Catherine Woodville. When Edward IV died in , and the showdown came between the Woodvilles and Edward’s brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, over who was going to be in charge of Edward V until he came of age, Buckingham was on Richard’s side at first. After dithering between them for a short while, Buckingham started working with John Morton, Bishop of Ely , in the interests of Buckingham’s second-cousin Henry Tudor and against those of King Richard, even though it meant being on the same side with his in-laws, the Woodvilles. When Henry Tudor tried to invade England to take the throne from Richard in Oct , Buckingham raised an army in Wales and started marching east to support Henry. By a combination of luck and skill, Richard put down the rebellion:
However, the plans were later scrapped when they instead decided to open a site to the south of Shrewsbury in Bayston Hill. Therefore, the Bayston Hill branch opened in The branch would later become known as Shrewsbury.

Darest thou resolve to kill a friend of mine? Tyrrel, I mean those bastards in the Tower. This identified Sir James Tyrrell as the murderer, acting on Richard’s orders. Tyrrell was the loyal servant of Richard III who is said to have confessed to the murder of the princes before his execution for treason in In his history, More said that the princes were smothered to death in their beds by two agents of Tyrrell Miles Forrest and John Dighton and were then buried “at the stayre foote, metely depe in the grounde vnder a great heape of stones”, but were later disinterred and buried in a secret place.
The chronicles were one of the main sources used by William Shakespeare for his play Richard III , which also portrays Richard as the murderer, in the sense that he commissions Tyrrell to have the boys killed. Pollard believes that the chronicle’s account reflected the contemporary “standard and accepted account”, but that by the time it was written “propaganda had been transformed into historical fact”. Additionally, More’s account is one of the bases for William Shakespeare’s Richard III, which similarly indicts Richard for murdering the young princes.

Shrewsbury West Ham: Fifteen years on from Everton’s elimination at the hands of the Shrews, the League One outfit dominated their Premier League opponents to earn another crack at the Hammers. Goalkeeper Joe Hart says he was grateful to the West Ham fan who lent him a cap during the first half at Shrewsbury Goalkeeper Joe Hart says he was grateful to the West Ham fan who lent him a cap during the first half at Shrewsbury Joe Hart denied first-half efforts from Mat Sadler and Alex Rodman on his return to his boyhood club, while Jon Nolan fired the best chance of the second period over late on.
For all of their dominance, though, Shrewsbury were unable to find a winner, but Paul Hurst’s men will fancy their chances at the London Stadium in a week’s time if faced with a similarly laboured West Ham performance. Morris 7 , Godfrey 7 , Rodman 7. Quina 6 , Martinez 6. Man of the Match: After more than holding their own in the first quarter, Shrewsbury created the first opening on 26 minutes when Shaun Whalley’s free-kick threatened to find Ben Godfrey at the back post, but Hart gathered.
Omar Beckles then flashed a volley over the bar but it wasn’t long until Hart was called into action again, first to deny Sadler’s low 35th-minute drive before palming Rodman’s effort from the edge of the area away. Shrewsbury dominated for large periods of the game The Hammers – partaking in their third game in five days – offered little by way of a response and, with a lack of options from the bench, the trend continued in the second half.

Between Sandy Hook and the Parkland massacre, where 17 people were killed by a former student on Feb. Physical systems, communications, technology, protocols, assessments and prevention are their primary areas that have reviewed and modified: Building access where all the exterior doors are locked at all schools and monitored buzzers at main entrances. The high school is the exception and has its own system. Provide barriers to interior doors using devices to jam the doors in the event of an active shooter.
Video surveillance capabilities which are linked to first responders. Building principals and staff use hand-held radios which have been upgraded recently and all schools are outfitted with a direct radio access to dispatch and are tested regularly. Technology is used to send signals remotely through an offsite computer system to notify school leadership of a lock-down situation.
For communication to the community they use their school messenger system which is what they also use in the event of a snow storm. The Department utilizes a uniform set of procedures across all school buildings should an incident occur.
It was very easy to find as its just off the main road. The Coop and the Oxon Park and Ride are at the entrance to the site. Park and Ride useful but the last bus back is about 6 pm so if you want to go into Shrewsbury in the evening you would have to get a taxi back. The info bureau said that it was because of the cuts that the buses stopped so early!
Every night we went to the Toby Carvery which was a 10 to 15 minute walk from our caravan. We enjoy cycling on the flat so I picked up some leaflets from the info bureau.

Born in London in , Ed was just 2 years-old when his family moved to Surrey to escape the London Blitz. His interest in all things ‘Great Western’ began as a small boy during family trips by steam train from Paddington to visit his grandparents in Gloucester. Some years later he joined the Great Western Society and regularly attended their open days.
Then in he started collecting postcards of WR main line steam, many purchased from John Smith, proprietor of Lens of Sutton on Westmead Road, then a Mecca for serious students of transport. Over the years, Ed’s contribution to the hobby has been quite remarkable; not only has he generously helped me and other contributors with the creation of this website, he was meticulous in acknowledging those who assisted in his own research.
Above all else, his willingness to share his in-depth studies with others is an admirable quality and many enthusiasts have dropped a line to express their appreciation.

This was the water on which I cut my teeth as an fisherman. Back in the early s it had a good diversity of fish, including excellent chub, splendid shoals of dace, reasonable roach, a few perch and the odd pike, it also held brown trout. At Meole it was never wide nor very deep, it was predominantly streamy water, with some quieter pools, not least the famous ‘waterfalls’ at Meole Brace, mill sluices leading into a large tree-lined pool. Thanks to the vandalism of the Severn Trent Water’s anti-flood scheme this pool was literally wiped off the map, the trees cut down, and the river there lined with unsightly stone-filled gabions.
I wrote about the Rea Brook in two Waterlog articles, the first in Summer , no 60, p. The river’s wildlife was rich and abundant, with a very large ‘water rat’ water vole population, and so we were told, though I never saw one, otters. Birds included sand martins, moorhens, kingfishers, grey and yellow wagtails. If you have fished the Rea, or still do, I would love to read your memories.
Are the stories true that I hear about grayling in the Rea and barbel too? The picture below is not one of mine, I found it on a blog here:
