Towton Moor

Every Palm Sunday a memorial event takes place at Towton to celebrate the anniversary of the biggest and bloodiest battle that took place on English soil.

On Palm Sunday 1461, in atrocious weather – howling wind, driving sleet and snow – the armies of two disputing Kings of England fought all day on a plateau of land a dozen or so miles south-west of the city of York. Details of the battle are available by following this link Palm Sunday Battle at Towton
