Further Reading

Adwalton Moor has been described by Cooke as ‘the forgotten battle’ and yet it was, after Marston Moor, the second most important action fought in the North during the Civil War. Of our main battlefield guides and atlases only four tackle Adwalton, compared to more than 20 for Marston Moor, and none describes it in detail. Cooke (1996) provides a useful summary but this booklet is difficult to obtain. The English Heritage Battlefield Register report is available online and is well worth consulting. However by far the most useful secondary work is the excellent, well researched book by David Johnson.
