Stow Remembers the English Civil War

Members of the Stow and District Civic Society gathered early on a clear morning at the memorial headstone, St Edward's Church, Stow-on the-Wold, marking the anniversary of the "Battle of Stow on this day in 1646 - the last battle of the first English Civil War".  

Hundreds of Royalist soldiers perished in the Square before the surrender by Sir Jacob Astley at the Market Cross. Over 1500 Royalist solders were imprisoned in the church overnight and marched to Gloucester the next day. 

The short service was conducted by Reverend Karen Wellman and daffodils were placed at both the memorial and the Market Cross, reflecting the origins of many of the Royalist soldiers recruited at that time from the Welsh Marches.
