Woolaton Hall 2012

This event was a two day event over the Spring bank holiday at Woolaton Hall near Nottingham. This was the Napoleonic Associations first event at this stately home. Tge house is situated in extensive grounds and gardens where the camps were situated. The French were by the house on top of the hill with the British below. The weather was fine this time but dull and just about warm enough. The event had living history and a battle in the afternoon of each day including Cavalry, infantry and Artillery.
