The battle of Naseby was fought on the morning of the 14th June 1645. In the open fields of that small Northamptonshire village, Parliament's New Model Army destroyed the main field army of King Charles I.
It was the most important battle fought on British soil.
The Naseby Battlefield Project aims to enhance visitor facilities at Naseby battlefield. You can help by becoming a Friend or Benefactor.
Once in the battlefield area there are relatively few footpaths to give the visitor access to the ground itself and the roads are narrow and ill-provided with parking places. Much of the viewing has to be done by looking over hedges and by walking on roads.
As this is countryside consisting of working farms, care must be taken not to trespass on private land, to leave gates as you find them, and to park without causing obstruction to roads or to farmers' gateways. Remember that modern farming machinery is huge! Not only does it take up a lot of room, but it is more formidable than a World War II tank and capable of inflicting similar damage on carelessly parked cars or on jaywalkers. We have never encountered anything but a friendly welcome; one just has to respect that those who live here are striving to make a living and not just amusing themselves by playing at gardening on a big scale.
