Our last short course, Yorkshire Battles, led by Dr Robert Wright, was a great success. We enjoyed blood-curdling tales of political struggles from before the Norman Conquest to the Civil War. The course was attended by over 60 people, many of whom visited the site of the Battle of Towton after the course. Here, the Towton Battlefield Society have erected a series of excellent, informative notices about the battle and a clear trail has been established for visitors to follow around the site.
For those wishing to visit another local battlefield, there is a guided walk across Marston Moor battlefield on Sunday 5th July, starting at 10.00am. The Battle of Stamford Bridge Society have battlefield walks on the first Sunday of every month, starting at 11.00am near the Corn Mill in Stamford Bridge.
