Our next talk, January 7th. The Battle of Naseby 1645 by Phil Steel

A new look at Naseby 1645 – Phil Steele. Another look at Northamptonshire’s historic battlefields, this time with the focus on the decisive Civil War clash at Naseby in June 1645.   Phil will talk generally about conserving the county’s battlefields and wider national issues, before honing in on Fairfax and Cromwell’s emphatic victory, the importance of historic landscapes – and how the King came to lose a battle that he probably never intended to fight.

Saxton Village Hall at 7:30, guests welcome £3.
