Conservation plan for Battle of Northampton site approved

"This year we are celebrating the rich and interesting story of Northampton and our nation. So it seems only fitting that we are looking carefully at how we can protect the site of one of the most significant battles fought on English soil," said Tim Hadland of the Northampton Borough Council about plans to preserve the Battle of Northampton site.

The battle, fought near Delapre Abbey on 10 July 1460, was one of the most important battles of the War of the Roses. It led to the crowning of the Yorkist king Edward IV.
