The Battle of Wakefield

I promised myself a holiday, and I got it. And on Saturday I finally visited Sandal Castle near Wakefield. The weather was very kind, Rufus and I had a good walk.

On Sunday I visited my parents, and I’m still on holiday today. So here are a few pictures from Saturday.

This is apparently where the Battle of Wakefield took place in 1460. It resulted in a Lancastrian victory during the Wars of the Roses.
I parked at Pugney’s Water Park and walked across to the castle. Here is one view of Pugney’s from Sandal Castle. Can you see my car …?

I’d love to have been able to take a look in here.

Tthis is my favourite picture from the visit.

Enjoy.
