Ickworth House 2012

This event was a two day training event held at Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. This was our second event at this National Trust stately home. The house is situated in an extensive park and has large gardens. The event was held in the grounds next to the house. We had sleet and hail but a nice first day. It was our second event of the season and included drill, living history, a five mile route march round the grounds and an evening skirmish.
