The beautiful location of Holdenby House where Charles 1 was held prisoner in 1647 saw a very busy weekend for all concerned. Filming taking place on the Living History Camp prior to opening time for the Public, kept us on our toes and full of coffee to keep us going.
A Military Camp with the day to day life of a Soldier and the Village with Stocks and a Maypole gave the public much to enjoy.
In the Gardens the 'Kings Entourage' played chess, bowls and wandered round admiring the blooms amongst other Cameo productions.
The Battle was as advertised 'Spectacular' with the advantage from the Public area of looking down across the area, so more was visible.
I just have to congratulate the 'Cittie of London Brigade' for the mass volley of muskets which were superb.
I would also like to thank the youngsters and a couple of non-combatants for playing the part of the wounded in their own cameo at the end of the Battle and the Preacher for his part.
Lots of hard work went into this event and yes despite being so tired I had a job too walk a straight line, I'd do it all again in an instant.
I do have to apologise for the lack of photos round the rest of Living History and the Kings Entourage though as I just couldn't get away from the Filming. ;-(
