Preparation underway for Re-enactment event


Oswestry Town Council are organising a re-enactment event in Cae Glas Park , Oswestry which will take place on the 5th August 10am until 4pm.

Les Miles des Marches is based on the Shropshire Marches and was created in 1991. They are a Norman group, historically linked to the overlordship of fitz Scorob, who held Richards Castle in 1066. We also cover the Civil War between Steven and Matilda, up to the rivalries of Richard and John. In 2008, we expanded our period of interest and created

The Shrewsbury Levy, dateline 1403 (Battle of Shrewsbury) up to the War of the Roses. In this period we represent a town levy.

Les Miles des Marches / Shrewsbury Levy is a thriving local Shropshire group, comprising of a structured military unit, an active living history encampment of a dozen structures where authentic medieval crafts are portrayed, we have an active archer unit and an enthusiastic banquet committee.
