There are three registered battlefields in Northamptonshire. Although many other battles have taken place in the county, only three sites are listed.
The ‘Register of Historic Battlefields’ is managed by Historic England. The listed battlefields are nationally significant and physically recognisable today. The register aims to protect the sites through the planning system and encourage public interest and enjoyment.
You can read more about the Register on the Historic England website or learn more about planning and the historic environment in our Expert advice section.
