The Sealed Knot presents The 375th Anniversary Battle of Cropredy Bridge, Cropredy – Two Day Event
We spent Saturday and Sunday at the weekend of commemoration and re-enactment of the Battle of Cropredy Bridge, 1644.
With Historic talks, walks and living history from the 17th century.
In a nutshell… The Battle of Cropredy Bridge was the culmination of a campaign to capture the King, beginning with Parliament forces massing around Oxford to take the city and the King. Charles (1st) snuck out of Oxford and led Parliament all around the Cotswolds ending up at Banbury and the Battle of Cropredy Bridge.
A massive thanks to our team who helped over both days, Pete Emms, Brian Baker, Richard Hamilton, Ian Fleming and Stewart Green, Banbury United’s Dave Wyatt for towing the vehicle and a special thanks to the organisers for inviting us to be part of this event.
