The anniversary walk at Naseby this year will be on Sunday June 10th and will include access to otherwise problem areas of the battlefield and weapons and kit demonstrations by members of the Sealed Knot. Not to be missed, this is the ‘real’ Naseby Battlefield tour, only costs £6 and all proceeds go to the Naseby Battlefield Project’s funds which maintain the visitor viewing areas, interpretation panels and online support.

Excellent (finally) to get a preview of the footage Richard Vobes took at Naseby 370. This was screened at the Naseby Project’s monthly evening get-together at The Royal Oak pub in the village.
The next pub evening at Naseby will be Phil Steele’s ‘Wargaming the Battle of Naseby’ … a look at the model, the issues and a chance to join in a refight. No experience necessary.
The pub is under new management and seems to be doing well – a good range of beers on offer and, the evening I went over to see the Naseby footage, there was a full menu available. All good news to Mercurius.
… with the Pike and Shot Society …
Thanks for visiting the Pike and Shot Society at Partizan … great to see everyone.
A very good turn out for Early Modern warfare … we enjoyed 3 historical battles as well as the Battlefields Trust and the Civil War Centre – so well done Partizan for supporting the History Zone.
