Worcester Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in Worcester, England; situated on a bank overlooking the River Severn. It is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Worcester and is the burial place of King John and Prince Arthur, elder brother of Henry VIII, whose premature death aged 15 changed England forever.
This image is part of the tomb of Nicholas Bullingham, Bishop of Worcester 1571-76.
He was born in Worcester in around 1520. He was sent to the Royal Grammar School Worcester, after which he entered Oxford University. In 1543, he became a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. He then gained his DCL from Cambridge University.
After his education in law, Bullingham entered the church, becoming private chaplain to Queen Elizabeth I. He then became Bishop of Lincoln and finally returned to his old city as Bishop of Worcester until his death in 1576. While at Worcester, he greeted the Queen on her visit to the city in 1575
