The Sealed Knot - ECWS: re-enactors

Bank Holiday weekends usually mean that The Sealed Knot, and The English Civil War Society are re-enacting somewhere. If you have never been to a re-enactment they usually take on two forms - a small demonstration with maybe just one regiment, or major battle with horses, cannon and hundreds of foot soldiers.


The Sealed Knot recently put on one of their major meets at Deene Park in Northampton. Here's a photo album as painting inspiration, or as a taster of what to expect.

The living history camp...



Prior to the battle 


the apprentices regiment drilled...


...and Hesilrigge's Lobsters rode out


The battle



The resident kites weren't sure what to make of it all






















Don't think any miniatures manufacturers make one of these

  1. The Cuirassier look splendid! Don't remember anything that fancy when I was in the SK. Very good set of pictures.

  2. Thanks.

    The cuirassiers rode around with their heads at the same angle as a glasses wearer peering over the top of their specs to read small print. Clearly trying to see out of the small slit in their visors.
