    ---
    For some unknown reason, Burghfield Church houses the superb alabaster effigy of Richard Neville, the Earl of Salisbury. Father of the all-powerful Warwick the Kingmaker, he fought for the Yorkist cause, during the War of the Roses, and was executed after the Battle of Wakefield (1460).
    He was buried first at Pontefract, but his son transferred his body to the family mausoleum at Bisham Abbey in East Berkshire. This is where his effigy originated. It was supposedly dragged to Burghfield 'from Newbury' behind two wild horses sometime after the Dissolution of the Monasteries! The lady alongside him is not of the right date to be his wife, but she is, no doubt, one of the other Countesses of Salisbury buried at Bisham.
