Battlefield Tours

The only way to truly understand a battle, is to walk in the footsteps of those who took part.

The Naseby Battlefield Project, not only gives regular public tours of the battlefield (see the news page and our Facebook page for details), but can also give bespoke tours for groups, and organisations of all types including schools and the armed forces. Our tours are individually tailored to suit your needs, not only in content but also length and distance (please note cars or a minibus etc. are recommended for the full tour). 

Examples of tours include:

  • a leadership based one for a large business;
  • strategy and tactics for a wargames group;
  • and a Cromwell based tour for a group of local tour guides.

Our chief guide is Naseby Battlefield Project Trustee, Mike Ingram, a historian, author and professional battlefield guide. He has a Masters Degree in History from the University of Birmingham and the author of a number of books and articles on military history. He is also qualified to teach adult education and runs courses, as well as regularly giving talks and lectures on history, including the English Civil War throughout the UK.

Mike is the Northampton representative for the Battlefields Trust and Chair of the Northampton Battlefields Society and, as such, has been instrumental in successfully fighting off numerous attempts to build on the 1460 battlefield.
