A bit of history…

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…
