Battle of Tewkesbury, 1471 Consultation

We are currently considering publishing a revised List entry on the Register of Historic Battlefields for the Battle of Tewkesbury 1471, the final and decisive battle in the English Wars of the Roses.

Tewkesbury Abbey
The Battle of Tewkesbury, 1471.

An area that has been developed since the battlefield was first registered in 1995 is proposed to be removed, and two parcels of land that are now thought to have seen action in battle, but were not included in 1995, are proposed for inclusion. A map showing the existing boundary of the registered battlefield and the revised boundary can be found in the Consultation Report below.

If you have any comments to make on the factual details outlined in the Consultation Report then please get in touch with Jerome Tait by Monday 17 October 2016.
