Powick Bridge, Worcester
Powick Bridge, Worcester
The old Powick Bridge (its function as the crossing for the main road to Malvern is now carried out by a newer bridge) was the site of the first and last actions of the English Civil War. The first was a skirmish in 1642 between Parliamentarian forces carrying Oxford University's gold plate and the young Prince Rupert, sent to intercept it. The last was in the Battle of Worcester in 1651, an unsuccessful action by Charles II in an attempt to regain power.
