‘The Battle of Marston Moor was one of the most important engagements of the English Civil War (war of 3 Kingdoms).
In 1644, York was held for the King, but besieged by Parliament. Prince Rupert of the Rhine's campaign in 1644 involved a large Royalist army coming North, laying siege to Liverpool, and massacring the defenders of Bolton, en route to York. Rupert's army was engaged outside York, at Marston Moor, and suffered a serious defeat.
Our speaker is Tim Cockitt, chair of MMHS, and also an enthusiastic member of the Battlefields Trust.
We are continuing to provide our monthly talks over the Internet, using Zoom.
There will be no meetings at the venue until April at the earliest.
To get access to the Jan-Mar 2022 meetings there will be a one-off fee of £5.00 (which covers all three, no matter how many you attend). For those members that have paid a full year’s membership in advance, there is no additional charge, the “virtual” talks will be included and arrangements will be made to extend your membership once we know when we are allowed to, once again, meet face to face.
