Britain’s battlefields are one of the less visible aspects of our country’s history. There is usually little to see in terms of the actual battle that took place there – perhaps just some earthworks, a monument, or the remains of a defensive ditch.
But the magic of visiting a battlefield doesn’t always lie in what you can see. More often it is about the sense of history, and the memory of the dramatic, terrible events that took place there. These sites have their very own atmosphere – they are often remote, dramatic places that are unlike any other kind of historic site.
