Naseby Battlefield Project at Milton Keynes
I took along the Naseby battlefield layout to help promote the upcoming Naseby 370 event.
This will be on display in the visitor area, along with the Battlefields Trust, The Pike & Shot Society, wargames from the Phoenix Group and lots of other family and enthusiast activities to support your day out.
I have had the soldier collection that did the round of shows some while back refurbished … fitted with Fluttering Flags and rebased … the flags are intentionally generic with a flavour of 1645 (and should allow other battles to be modelled of course ) … Worth a look, nevertheless, I hope …
We did not play through the battle as a wargame but moved the pieces during the course of each day as an instructional tableau adding hamster bedding to mark the firing (which – a pleasant surprise – immediately drew the attention of passing shoppers) …
Well, a great show and 2 splendid day’s out explaining Northamptonshire’s military heritage to the shoppers of Milton Keynes.
Thank you, everyone who stopped, for your interest in our project and I hope you enjoyed the exhibits.
Please come along to the big event in June: Naseby 370
