A commemoration of the 375th anniversary of the Plot, Siege and Battle which took place in Weymouth during the English Civil War in February 1645, causing the loss of over 500 lives and being a big factor in the King, Charles 1 losing his crown and eventually, his head.
What took place over those three weeks in Weymouth, helped to shape English history and we strive to keep the memory alive of all those who fought and died there in this hugely important Battle, be they Royalist or Parliamentarian.
