London-based architects are also working on possible designs for his raised tomb. “This is an immensely complex project and we are determined to get it right. Inevitably that means considerable expense but we are confident that with the support of the Church and the public, we can honor Richard and his story,” said The Rt. Reverend Tim Stevens, the Bishop of Leicester.
