A Winter Skirmish: The Battle of Yarm, 1643

An exhibition commemorating the 375th anniversary of an encounter between Royalists and Parliamentarians during the English Civil War of the 17th Century.

Fought on 1 February 1643, the Battle of Yarm saw a defending force of Parliamentarians defeated by the attacking Royalists, who captured the vitally-important Yarm Bridge. Then, as now, the bridge was one of the main crossings over the River Tees.

Discover the story of this battle and the wider histories of the English Civil War in this fascinating, Heritage Lottery Fund-supported exhibition.
