A view of the Parliamentarian deployment area on 'Old Nans' (Ordnance) Hill at Ripple

Battle of Ripple Field 1643

Saturday 18th April 2020

Tony Spicer and Gregg Archer will be leading a walk over the site of this lesser known battlefield of the first Civil War where Prince Maurice achieved a dramatic victory over Sir William Waller. Ironically, although a royalist victory, it was the prelude to the first siege of Worcester. The walk will be on quiet country lanes around the battlefield.

The event will start at 2pm at the Railway Inn, Station Road, Ripple GL20 6EY where lunch or light bites can be obtained beforehand. For further information contact Gregg Archer using the details below. 

After the conclusion of the walk there will be a visit to the very interesting Ripple Church which dates from the 12th century.  It is noted for its misericords and the window in memory of Brigadier Peter Young, Founder of the Sealed Knot.

Although not essential it would assist the Railway Inn if those taking lunch / light bites there could order in advance. Menus can be obtained from the Railway Inn at www.railwayinnatripple.co.uk.  The pub can be contacted on 01684 592225 or railwayinnatripple@gmail.com
