Newstead Abbey Napoleonic Re-enactment Weekend – Part 2

May 30, 2011
Newstead Abbey

After we had partaken of a light lunch, we headed back to the encampments for a final wander round before the battle.

The Flag

It was nearly time to head for the battlefield, so we got some more photos of the men preparing to march…

Time to head off to do battle with those Frenchies

We followed the columns to the battlefield and found a spot to watch the battle re-enactment from…

Close to the French camp

Here come the redcoats...huzzah!

Are those Frenchies trying to tell us something??

Where are they sneaking off to??

Those poor old Frenchies were well outnumbered…

They think it’s all over…it is now!!

Time for the ‘curtain call’…

Well done, boys

Standing to attention!

The victorious British...huzzah!

Redcoats

Before we left, we had one more wander round and met some more friends…

Sarah and Richard Newman

After the battle

We had a brilliant day…thank you to everyone who make it happen.

To finish off this wee blog, here are some photos of the lake and house…

The Waterfall

The Little Fort

It really is a little fort!

The lake, from the fort

The Abbey and stable buildings

f a light lunch, we headed back to the encampments as the troops began to prepare for the forthcoming battle…
