Gilbert's house in the foreground, the Parliamentary forces on the left with the Royalist forces on the right hand side of the road. Looking West to East.
The Parliamentary forces.
As you can see, quite an impressive array of troops, waiting for orders. The Royalist foot are all in column of march and all three artillery pieces are limbered. The Parliamentarians, on the other hand, have guns unlimbered and foot regiments in line of battle.
I will hopefully be doing a turn by turn update over the coming days, so please check back regularly, alternatively, you can also watch the battle unfold on my You Tube channel, a link to which is in the top right hand corner of this blog.
