                  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.
