Giant (wooden) horseback knights in full medieval armour greet visitors and locals alike to the town, and War of the Roses Battlefield. Situated on a traffic roundabout just south of the Abbey., these 16ft figures are unmissable, and invoke a mixture of history and a strange symbolic art , now time has softened the wood.

I very much wanted to see the battlefield for Richard the Third's great Victory (as Duke of Gloucester ) over the Lancastrians in the Battle of Tewkesbury. I walked Bloody Meadow for about a half hour meditating.
The meadow is now simply a large field with dandelions in yellow and white, . . . dandelions, gold soldiers grieving on the green ground, white souls wafting from the battleground into the air.

The battlefield should have been the last and deciding battle of the Wars of the Roses, the battle which decisively witness the success of Edward IV of York over Henry VI of Lancaster.
This place does it justice and offers an insight into what occured here, which can only be described as a bloody past.

Noting really much to see on this one as its stuck on a roundabout and there is no carpark. I personally wouldn't go again but that's me.

Leaving Tewksbury saw these at roundabout would have liked more time to take in but could see very cleverly built.

I find these "sculptures" quite hideous. They are neither figurative nor abstract but a middle of the road compromise. They were obviously produced on a minimal budget and the one good thing about them is that as wooden objects they won't last very long. I understand that thanks to a press campaign they are supposed to be popular but I'm sure the residents of Tewkesbury have more sense than that.

You will see these two as you enter Tewkesbury on the A38 one on the roundabout the other at the side, both facing each other. The Horses are just lovely large structures of wood. Beautiful with Sun set behind them, in snow and also in Spring surrounded by flowers. Do watch out or you could miss them as no where to stop if travelling in the car. Enjoy. Lynda

If you drive to or from Tewkesbury on the A38 you'll drive past a couple of wooden horses that make the battlefields of the area in the war if the Roses. How these objects are ranked so high in things to do in the town is beyond me.

Tewkesbury has so much more to offer, you drive past and you've seen them. Go to the battlefields, see the abbey, look at the Tudor architecture, go to he theatre...just don't waste valuable time on 2 horse sculptures next to roundabouts.

I wouldn't get over excited about the sculptures. Angel of the north they are not. They are two lumps of wood on a busy out of town roundabout.

Whether the horses in the round about, the battlefield walking trails, or the battlefield meadow, Tewkesbury has a lot to observe and learn about the War of the Roses.

We walked the pathways and enjoyed the plaques placed throughout the town referencing the battle in May of 1471.

Thank you for preserving and presenting history here so meaningfully and vividly. I wish more mention was made about the colorful banners that are displayed by homes and businesses along with descriptions of what significance the play.
