Thanks to everyone who came to our talk on Saturday 18th March on the tumultuous three month period between the Battle of Wakefield and the Battle of Towton. It was great to see everyone there and to receive your questions and feedback. We will hopefully see you all on Saturday 17th June, when our next talk will take place at Pontefract Castle, entitled ‘Friends and Enemies – Pontefract and Sandal Castles 1070-1650’. In the meantime, if anyone has any further questions or would like to arrange a free tour of the local battlefield sites, then please get in touch via the ‘contact us’ button on the front page of this website.
Just a final reminder about our forthcoming talk on Saturday 18th March 2023, at 2.00pm at Pontefract Castle Visitor Centre. The talk covers three of the most momentous months in English medieval history from the Lancastrian supremacy at the Battle of Wakefield to their catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Towton, which established the Yorkist king, Edward IV, on the throne. We have added a few more places to this talk – as the original allocation had already been taken – so we hope to see you there on the day.
