Battle of Ripple 1643

Saturday 14th April 2018

Tony Spicer will be leading a walk over the site of this lesser known battlefield 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. This and the campaign will be explained prior to the walk. The event will start at 2pm at the Railway Inn, Station Road, Ripple GL20 6EY where lunch or light bites can be purchased beforehand.

 

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 Civil War re-enactment society The Sealed Knot.h

 

Although not essential it would assist the Railway Inn if those taking lunch / lite bites there could order in advance. Menus can be obtained by email from Tony Spicer at the contact details below and the Railway Inn can then be contacted on 01684 592225 or enquiries@railwayinnatripple.co.uk
