SLIDESHOW: Battle of Wakefield anniversary remembered in style at Sandal Castle

Waiting for Video...

Children learned how to prepare for medieval fighting during a series of events to commemorate the 553rd anniversary of the Battle of Wakefield.

Youngsters got to grips with spears and battle cries during events held at Sandal Castle yesterday (Sunday).

Families also enjoyed talks and tours, while re-enactors from Frei Compagnie marched to Richard Duke of York’s monument on Manygates Lane and laid wreaths.

The day of activities was organised by Friends of Sandal Castle.
