The first battle of English Civil War was fought just 4 miles away from the Gardens. This weekend we welcome Colonel John Pickering’s Regiment of Foote for the weekend.
Displays, drills and demonstrations throughout the weekend as this 17th century re-enactment group make camp in the grounds.
Wander among the Parliamentary troops and their followers as they prepare for battle at Curdworth Bridge, near Water Orton.
Get into conversation with those who cooked the meals and sewed the cloth…
Let your imagination float back 300 years through the sound and smell of muskets and camp fire smoke…
