We're wondering if anyone can help us date this photo which shows The Vaults in more recent times during a commemoration, organised by the Heritage Society and The Sealed Knot Society, of the civil war 'Battles of Middlewich. Although sometimes referred to as a 're-enactment' of the battle(s) the event wasn't really anything of the sort. The Battles of Middlewich were fought in the streets and around the Parish Church and Newton Hall areas and a re-enactment would have been very problematic. So a parade and demonstration of civil war drill and musketry technique was staged instead. Perhaps someone from the Heritage Society can enlighten us as to the date of this event?
