100 Places - Loss & Destruction

England wears its battle scars from thousands of years of conflict and disaster. From Marston Moor, the site of the largest battle ever fought on English soil, to the Oak colliery disaster in Barnsley that changed English law, we think everybody should know about the places in England that have witnessed some of the most important historic events.

Tell us about places that mark, or were marked by, wars, battles, or disasters that you think needs to be in the list of 100 Places.
