PICTURE SPECIAL: Siege of Crowland Abbey 1643 re-enacted for the third time by The Sealed Knot

Two South Holland towns met on the battlefield at the weekend nearly 380 years after weapons were last drawn on each other.

But it was all one big act on Saturday and Sunday as members of British historical charity The Sealed Knot restaged the 1643 Siege of Crowland Abbey when the church and its people were attacked by Parliamentarians from Spalding as part of the English Civil War.

Battle commenced on Crowland's Snowden Playing Fields after re-enactors, dressed in costumes from the 17th century, marched through the town centre before the opposing sides met at Trinity Bridge.
