Battlefield Shropshire – The History and Topography of Shropshire 1820

Q. What is Battlefield?

A. Battlefield, about four miles north of Shrewsbury, is the scene of the great battle between Henry IV. and Henry Percy, son to the Earl of Northumberland. Victory declaring for the King, in consequence of the death of Percy, he erected a church on the spot in testimony of his gratitude, but it is now in a ruinous condition. Under a tumulus near the churchyard, the slain in that memorable engagement lie buried.

Q. Describe Haughmond Abbey.

A. Haughmond Abbey is a picturesque ruin, a little to the east of Battlefield. It was formerly a religious house for regular canons of St. Augustine, founded in the year 1100, by William Fitz-Alan. Situated on a rising ground, and backed by an extensive forest, these ruins form an interesting object. The south door of the nave of the abbey church, the chapter house, the refectory, and a spacious hall, are the only parts of the edifice that are not wholly decayed.
