Battle of Winwick 1648 added to the Battlefields Trust Resource Centre
6 August 2017
The battle, which marked the end of the 1648 Preston Campaign and saw Lieutenant General Oliver Cromwell defaet the remnants of the Duke of Hamilton's Engager army, has now been added to the Battlefields Trust Resource Centre and can be seen at the following link http://battlefieldstrust.com/resource-centre/civil-war/battleview.asp?BattleFieldId=90.
The Battlefields Trust has requested Historic England consider registering the battle as it is probably the best surviving Second Civil War battlefield in England and Historic England are currently preparing a public consultation document to commence the registration process.
The battlefield is also partly under threat as the area of parliamentarian deployment, which is on the former Parkside colliery site, is set to become a major rail terminal.
