Charles Cordell will describe the key events of 26 July 1643, including the assaults made by the King’s Western and Oxford armies on the city. The walk will trace the line of the western defensive works, before following the route of Prince Rupert’s break in.

The meeting point will be on Brandon Hill Fort, at the base of the Cabot Tower, at 15:00. The walk will aim to end at the site of the Parliamentary headquarters, on Broad Street, at 17:00.
