Battlefield 1403Come and join us at Battlefield 1403 and discover more about the battle of Shrewsbury at the Exhibition Centre.

I really do consider a visit to the Exhibition Centre a well worthwhile outing, perhaps on and around the annual anniversary of the battle (21 July 1403) especially for  Pobl Fflintshire who could lay flowers (as we did- see pics below) in memory of the Welsh who fought and died in the battle.
.
A falsehood we must lay to rest is the above lie as to Glyndŵr having avoided the battle. At this time - and for much of July, Glyndŵr was in West Wales with the grand Liberation Army however, as soon as he heard of the disasterous losses of the men of Fflintshire, he broke away from his military mission in the West of Wales, heading back to the North East to defend that area from a potential major military invasion following the Battle of Shrewsbury. Thence on, the invasion of Southern Wales was led by Glyndŵr's great General, Rhys Gethin, who took the Castles of Swansea and Neath then going on to win the Battle of Stalling Down at the end of July. Rhys Gethin then led the Army of Southern Liberation in an attack on Cardiff Castle and engaged the English enemy wherever they could be found in Glamorgan whilst Glyndŵr defended the North East.

Hope the above will be of interest and a 'taster' to encourage you to visit the Battlefield and Exhibition Centre. Do also visit their excellent website. Other than this, do support our campaign to have all Glyndŵr associated Battlesites in Wales recognised in a similar way as to the above and for such work to be concluded by 2014 - the 660th anniversary of the Birth of our 'Mab Darogan' in 1354. That's five years for this important 'Gwaith Coffâd Glyndŵr' to be completed so, get busy - and note, its certainly worthwhile to visit the  'I'r Gad Welsh Battlefields Campaign blog' as a blog that will give you valuable information and assistance towards achieving the aforementioned.
