Battle of Stoke Field

 Another chance to visit a battlefield today this time Stoke Field near Newark. The final battle of the Wars of the Roses and a bloody three hours it was. If you go its worth finding the memorial in the Church Yard ,the church its self is easily missed .

LEFT: In the distance the woods are the "Red Gully" the hoped or escape route for the rebel army ,sadly it is now out of bounds to the public.
