Colchester Castle Park
The Sealed Knot is once again returning to Colchester, this time the venue is Castle Park so we look forward to seeing you there. Come and witness 17thC life, drill displays and the inevitable Skirmish and get in touch with the history of the town during the period of the English Civil Wars.
The siege of Colchester occurred in the summer of 1648 when the English Civil War reignited in several areas of Britain. Colchester found itself in the thick of the unrest when a Royalist army on its way through East Anglia to raise support for the King, was attacked by Lord-General Thomas Fairfax at the head of a Parliamentary force.
