Palm Sunday Field

The Old London Road

This is the Old London Road near the tiny village of Towton near York. On Palm Sunday 1461, during a fierce blizzard, two massive armies fought in these fields for the Crown of England.

28 Thousand men died on the day and probably that same amount of their injuries during the following days. The Crown changed hands that day with the new King being Edward IV. The fields are pretty much as they were on that fateful day 560 years ago, nothing has changed. It is a sombre place.
