Good thread - indeed there were plenty of armed conflicts going on of various scaless in this period that werent directly related to the WOTR that tends to dominate what we do

ditto the Cornish and Kentish rebellion, the Vernon feud up here

Marcus - Battle of Derby - is that the one near Belper?

(1) At Barnet, I'm sure I read a moon was mistaken for a sun. Anyone? "Friendly fire" - Oxford routed Hastings men and followed after them, on returning to their "lines" in the poor visibility, the Lancastrians mistook their mullet (star) for the sun of Edward IVs men and attack...

Lol Audley was buried in Derby although the site is long since gone. All that remains is the Abbey Inn - a compact and rather good value pub.

nice one - first time I've seen the Beaufort livery in action lol - also see Mr Harley in there, presumably as Sir John Conyers, Fox on the handgun and my erstwhile Savile colleagues.

The church you can see behind Fox is where various ancestors of mine are buried :)

Medieval Top Hat

Couldn't find Fox's original thread on this so I'll start a new one. Found this piccy of a C15 gargoyle from St Peter's Church at Winchcombe Glos - apparently a caricature of a local worthy Looks like some form of top hat on him - especially if you consider erosion of the brim http://www.viennawalks...
