Last bank holiday Monday we visited the site of the Battle of Naseby. I know I’m a tad late posting this but as the 370th anniversary of the battle is next weekend I figured it was (almost) topical!
Naseby is a village in Northamptonshire and in June 1645, it was the site of the most decisive battle of the Civil War. Charles I and his Royalist troops were defeated by Oliver Cromwell and the Parliamentarians.
According to a flyer I found, The Sealed Knot and The Naseby Battlefield Project will be re-enacting the battle on 13th and 14th June, admission to which is free. I might pop over and take a look.
Please excuse the quality of the photographs. I didn’t take my camera with me so I had to rely on my iPhone.
The battlefield site was very quiet, despite a road running along side. I don’t know if it was just my imagination, but it certainly felt like there was an atmosphere there…
