Threat to Bramham Moor (1408) Battlefield

22 August 2013

Leeds City Council is considering the Bramham Moor battlefield for development as part of its area plan. Whilst this does not mean construction will take place, the Battlefields Trust has objected to the site's inclusion (see here to view letter) because of the battle's political importance, the unspoilt nature of the battlefield terrain and the threat to any extant archaeology.

Bramham Moor, although relatively small in terms of numbers involved, marked the end of a series of revolts against Henry IV with the death in the battle of Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland.
