Battle of Lansdown Hill, Waller's first position


A view of the hill itself from the track (now a road) in the vale between Lansdown Hill and Freezing Hill where the Royalists initially formed up. The woods to the right and left of the crest of the hill were there at the time, and Waller formed a defensive position between them. It;s not difficult to see why Hopton initially chose not to assult it.
