    Coming from Hereford and the Welsh Marches during the Barons' War, Montfort tried to join his son Henry at Kenilworth, taking the old salt way to Stratford via Alcester which was guarded by Prince Edward (later Edward I). When the barons were defeated at Kenilworth, Simon was trapped between Edward's army and a loop in the river. He was killed, his body hacked to pieces and the remains buried under the high altar of Evesham Cathedral by the Cistercians monks.
