A tour by Linda Monckton of the Beauchamp Chapel at St Mary's Church in Warwick. The chapel contains the tomb of Richard Beauchamp , Earl of Warwick, father-in-law of the notorious 'Kingmaker'. He was once considered one of the richest and most powerful people in England. Richard de Beauchamp provided funds in his will for the creation of a chantry chapel in St Mary's. This aptly dubbed the Beauchamp Chapel, is one of the great Gothic architectural achievements in England. The executors of Beauchamp's will spent over £2,400, an enormous sum in those days, creating a masterpiece of Gothic style which took over 20 years to complete.
