How about a slide show or a walk around Worcester with one of these...

The Faithful Story
Relive Worcester's past during the English civil wars through tales of the struggles between king and Parliament, played out on the very streets you are walking along! Discover Prince Rupert’s plans for the crumbling walls, look down on the city from Fort Royal & hear of the vandalism of the Parliamentarian forces in the cathedral.

The Battlefield Story
This is a half-day, five mile tour of the fields where the first (1642) and final (1651) battles of the English Civil War took place. Follow the route of the Royalist forces, cross the meadows alongside the rivers Severn and Teme, stand where the famous bridge of boats may have stood and walk across the very bridge at Powick that once rang out with the sound of cavalry horses as they heralded the start of one of the most important periods of our history.
Excellent! It was interesting and informative. Paul is a very good speaker who engages well with the group.

Cherry Orchard Ladies Group
I am writing to thank you for the interesting talk you gave last night. We all enjoyed hearing about the Civil War and seeing the artefacts you brought with you. There was so  much of the history of Worcester we were unaware of. You brought it to life for us
