We regularly give tours of the Northampton 1460 battlefield and the others in our area, Edgcote and Naseby. These are announced on our Facebook page and our “Out & About” tab, and take place on or about the anniversary of the battles.

If you would like a personal tour for yourself or your group, please contact us for prices and arrangements. We try to accommodate most requests, but all of our guides are volunteers and may not always be available on specific dates.

Northampton 1460

We mark the anniversary of the 1460 battle with a wreath laying at the Eleanor Cross at 2pmand short explanation of the battle from the corner of the golf course. Depending upon the exact day the anniversary falls, we will offer a more extensive tour in the morning, starting from the Abbey.

Whenever there is a heritage event at Delapre Abbey you will normally find us offering longer walks round the battlefield throughout the day.
