Battlefield Tour – August 3rd

August 14, 2014 in Uncategorized by Karen Everett

We had a great day exploring the battlefield today, looking at everything

  • from why the battle was fought where it was,
  • how the battle developed,
  • the deployments
  • and tactics to the landscape and how it affected the outcome.

If you missed it and want to come we will be doing it all again on 7 Sept.

Book your place early to avoid disappointment!
