Naseby at the Royal Oak

370 footage

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.

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.
