Marston Moor - Cromwell's Plump


The small clump of trees at the highest point of the ridge where the Parliamentarian forces lined up before the Battle of Marston Moor. It is thought to be where the Commanders surveyed the Royalist forces to decide their battle plan. Even though Lord Fairfax was the Commander in Chief, the point is known as Cromwell's (or Oliver's) Plump.
