A History of England in 100 Places is sponsored by Ecclesiastical

England wears battle scars from thousands of years of conflict, destruction and disaster. From Marston Moor, the site of the largest battle ever fought on English soil; to the Euston Arch which was lost to heritage destruction; to the Barnsley Main Colliery which saw the horrific 'Oaks explosion' that changed English law, we want to raise awareness of the places that have shaped England today.
