Catholic History Walk near Towton.

Saturday 28th March 2020 to Towton battlefield.
We will visit the battlefield site, the village of Saxton, and finish with a visit to the church of the Immaculate Conception at Barkstone Ash.
The battle field walk is around 3 miles on country paths, and we could walk to Barkstone Ash and back which would add another 3 miles. Please wear outdoor shoes, and we can decide, as before, whether to bring a packed lunch or to find a pub.
We’ll leave the parish at 9.30am on the Saturday, or we could meet, just after 10am at the battlefield site, which is just north of Saxton village.
We’ll finish the walk with the Guild prayers in the church of the Immaculate Conception.
The battle was fought in 1461 on 29th March. Our visit will be on the eve of the anniversary.
