Towton 1461 was arguable the bloodiest battle ever on english soil, with up to 26,000 dead in a battle which lasted from dawn til dusk in blizzard conditions. To celebrate and commemorate the 550th aniversary a reenactment was held on Palm Sunday in, paradoxically, blistering heat. Not as many re-enactors arrived as was hoped and so the previous days action at Ferrybridge was portyrayed. Hopefully this event will go the way of Blore and Mortimer's Cross and grow in future years.
