Wherever you go in the British Isles you’re surrounded by history. The parts of Yorkshire I travel are no exception – and it’s not just the major heritage sites.
There are many historic villages and tucked-away places of interest at every turn. Even not-so-tucked-away; like this commemorative obelisk to the Battle of Marston Moor on the roadside just out of the village of Long Marston near York.
Here you can gaze across the fields where in 1644 the Royalist army encountered Oliver Cromwell and the Parliamentarians. Still in existence is a small group of trees known as Cromwell’s Clump. Amazing!
