‘The Civil Wars in Cheshire’ evening class at Nantwich Museum


Following the success of an evening class run in 2017, Nantwich Museum is running a further course, this October, focussed on the English civil wars.

Entitled ‘The Civil Wars in Cheshire’ the five week course takes place on Thursday evenings from 4th October until 1st November.

The course aims to provide an understanding of the local war, and course tutor Dr Keith Lawrence will cover a number of different aspects.

These include: the arrival of the war in Cheshire in 1642, the lead up to the Siege of Nantwich and the campaign of the ‘Irish Royalist Army’ in 1643, the Barthomley Massacre of December 1643, the Siege and 1644 Battle of Nantwich, and finally the Siege of Chester and Sir William Brereton’s search for support.

The cost is £50, which includes course materials and refreshments. Early booking is recommended.
