More pictures from Naseby battlefield

Naseby SK walk 01

This month Naseby project guides hosted an ‘off season’ visit by members of the Sealed Knot.    SK members regularly turn out in period costume to help visitors to Naseby get a feel for the period.

Always ‘on duty’, it turns out many reenactors had not actually been taken round the battlefieldas visitors.

This ‘winter’ tour was to remedy that.

It is a good time to visit the battlefield as the hedges that have enclosed the fields since the 17th Century are less prominent at this time of year.

Dust Hill still shows evidence of the ridge and furrow that covered the battlefield in 1645.  In the background you can see the flag at Sulby Hedge.  This marks the far (Royalist Right) corner of the battlefield.
