Thorn Kings: Poems from English battlefields by Clare Mulley


Clare Mulley is a Yorkshire-born poet, journalist and teacher, who leads workshops across the UK. In 2015 she was appointed Poet in Residence at the Battlefields Trust and this remarkable collection of 16 poems is the result of that collaboration. It includes poems inspired by visits to Hastings, Towton, Bosworth and Naseby as well as reflections on battles and battlefields in general.


In due course the booklet will be available online, to order through bookshops, and at Trust events but it is now available (UK ONLY) to order by post by sending a cheque for £4.50 (additional copies £4.00) made payable to the Battlefields Trust to 29 Wolseley Rd, Godalming, GU7 3EA
