Northampton Battlefield Conference

Regular readers will know that I'm an active campaigner to preserve the Wars of the Roses battlefield in Northampton. As part of the campaign to look after our heritage the Northampton Battlefields Society is staging its first annual conference on the weekend of 24th/25th September.

We've put together a programme covering a wide range of subjects on the Saturday, and for those of you who can stay or return the following day there's a bonus battlefield tour from the Society Chairman, Mike Ingram, author of THE book on the battlefield. We've done it to this way to enable us to fit in as many speakers as we can on the first day, and to give us flexibility if the weather is unkind to us.

The conference fee includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day. If you want to stay over then there are rooms at the conference venue at a discounted rate if you apply before the 27th August.

Places are limited, so for those of you interested in the Wars of the Roses and our military heritage, I've put a link to the application form up amongst the Downloads, top right.

It promises to be an excellent day, and all in support of a good cause. I look forwards to seeing you there.
