The walk is just superb. It covers roughly 2 miles but there are around 10 stops en-route which took around 2.5 hours. Chris was our guide and he was tremendous. So much passion for the subject and the area. I would recommend it to anyone.

An amazing experience. Our guide was Pete, who was informed, interesting and made the events of that period of history come alive. His enthusiasm for the subject and style of delivery meant that we remained engaged throughout the 3 hours of the walk.

The primary battlefield was a wheat field when I visited, so it is actually difficult to imagine the carnage that took place here when all you can is wheat. That said the site has some good information boards and it is a pleasant quiet walk,...More

I can't add more than above, it's interesting to hear of the chapel discovery. I always associated the Lead chapel as being the site of memorial. Maybe Richard 111s site could be included in tour?
