The Lion King

Pen drawing based on the folk story of how Leominster got its name.
Two men dreamt on the same night, a Lion was King of their village. The two men both religous started a church in their village, a statue of a lion above the door. They were later granted to have the villgae change to Leominster in remembrance to their dream.
Mary Hopkins (1987) Once upon a time... in Worcester and Hereford.
