Danesmoor (site of the Battle of Edgcote)
The Battle of Edgcote during the Wars of the Roses took place in this now tranquil vale close to the river Cherwel. The Earl of Pembroke and his mainly Welsh troops were travelling north to support Edward IV at Nottingham and came upon the rebel army led by Robin of Redesdale who were moving south to join forces with Warwick (the Kingmaker). The battle on the 26th July 1469 was a black day for the Welsh, Pembroke was captured and executed and 168 Welsh noblemen were killed along with many hundreds of common soldiers.
