Hedgeley Moor and Hexham: Percy Cross, Northumberland

Hedgeley Moor and Hexham: Percy Cross, Northumberland

After the battle of Towton there was a period of attempted pacification, but Margaret of Anjou was not yet ready to accept defeat, and rallied her scattered supporters. So successful was she that after three years the Lancastrians were able to fight another battle on Hedgeley Moor (bottom), April 25, 1464: but only to suffer another reverse. Percy Cross (top left), one and three-quarter miles north of Hedgeley station commemorates Sir Ralph Percy, who fell in this battle. Hexham (top right) was the scene of the battle, May 15, 1464.
