The 14th century stained glass in the church at Fladbury, which used to be thought to have come from Evesham Abbey at the dissolution and to have commemorated those who fell in the battle. However Cox has argued that the association of the glass with the battle is spurious.

ST LAWRENCE'S CHURCH, EVESHAM

This is worth a brief visit, when in the Abbey grounds, as it contains some 19th century stained glass commemorating the battle.

 

FLADBURY CHURCH

 

Just off the Worcester road, 4 miles to the north west of Evesham.


Ever since the 18th century the six shields depicted in 14th century stained glass at Fladbury church, three miles from Evesham, have been said to commemorate fallen from the battle of Evesham. The glass was claimed to have been taken from Evesham Abbey, or even the Battlewell chapel, at the Dissolution. However Cox has argued that they may not in fact relate to the battle, and that the one with the lion rampant may not even be the arms of de Montfort, but rather of a local 14th century family.
