Return to the Battlefields

Return to the Battlefields

After numerous trips to the battlefields, I have put together a short guide with useful advice and information on how to prepare for your visit, places to stay, and sites to include on your tour. This opens as a PDF file and can be save to your computer.

Battlefield visit by local Farndon residents

Ken Wakefield, Neil Lewis and Colin Capewell, visited the battlefields in Belgium and France, and also took time to find the resting place of Charles Williamson of the Old Red Lion in Churton, who is recorded on the Farndon War Memorial. Full report by Ken, plus a link to Charles Williamson's biography which features their visit in detail.
