SEDGEMOOR BATTLEFIELD

SEDGEMOOR BATTLEFIELD

The Battle of Sedgemoor was fought on 6th July 1685, a desperate attempt by Charles II's illegitimate son, the Duke of Monmouth, to seize the throne from his uncle, James II. Monmouth's largely peasant army was no match for the king's well-trained professionals. The defeated rebels were treated terribly harshly. There is a memorial (pictured) a short walk to the east of the postcode shown, but little else to see. Parking is extremely limited. A heritage trail is available from St Mary's church in Westonzoyland.
