Saturday 26th October 2019

Join Simon Marsh for a walk across the battefield of Edghill, the first major encounter of the Civil War, followed by lunch and a talk about the battle.

The going is flat across fields and along roads and pathways.  The walk will last about two and a half hours.

Following the walk a soup and sandwich lunch will be available if pre-booked in advance at a cost of £5

A talk about the battle by Simon Marsh will be held in Radway church at 2:30pm.  A charge of £5 will be made for this, to include tea and biscuits, with proceeds going to the Radway Events Group and the Edgehill Exhibition in Radway Church.
