Future of the Battlefield

Over the years numerous attempts to develop parts of the battlefield have been defeated by community opposition.  Given the historic importance of the Battle of Northam, we believe that this area should be safeguarded for future generations as tourist resource and to enable future historic study of the site.

Our vision is a well-marked battlefield trail made up of existing roads and public footpaths that people can access via an online app, or through free downloads.  In addition, we would like to see annual commemorations of the battle including historical walks, talks and re-enactments, and work with local schools and colleges.
