Battle of Adwalton Moor 1643

Sunday 4th June 2017

Military historian and battlefield guide David Cooke will be leading a walk around the Civil War battlefield of Adwalton Moor. A near run thing in which the Fairfaxes came close to defeating a much larger Royalist force, the Parliamentary defeat here and subsequent loss of control in Yorkshire prompted Parliament to ally with the Scots.


Meet at Drighlington Community Library, near Junction 27 of the M62,(postcode BD11 1JZ) at 11am, Sunday 4th June . The walk will take approximately 2 hours and cover approximately 2 miles.


Free to Trust Members, £5 donation request of non-Members
