It was a very different day to the day of the battle, we had bright sunshine and high temperatures whilst on Palm Sunday in 1461 it was snowy and somewhat colder!
The battlefield and the surrounding area are given over to farm land and given the often poor recognition of the history of some battlefields I was impressed that Towton has display boards and a battlefield trail that you can walk.
