near to Worcester, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Winter in Fort Royal Park
Winter in Fort Royal Park
Fort Royal's moment of fame came in September 1651, when the Royal Standard of King Charles II was raised here, in an attempt to regain power from Oliver Cromwell. The Battle of Worcester was the last military action of the post Civil War period, with "crowning glory" for Cromwell and a long flight for Charles to Shropshire, then in a circuitous route to the South coast and escape to France. Fort Royal is now a public park and a favourite with photographers for its excellent view of Worcester Cathedral.
