The Battle of Sedgemoor was played out on the Somerset Levels in 1685 and it often referred to as the last pitched battle on English soil.
James Scott, the Duke of Monmouth, and his rebel supporters made a surprise attack on the Kings Army while Royalists were camped at Westonzoyland in Somerset. But things went horribly wrong.
I visit the exhibition centre set up to explain the battle and recount the horrific events afterwards with the Bloody Assizes.
