I have posted an update on my blog with details of the troops involved in the battle and thoughts on their deployment.

The last post on refighting the battle should be up this weekend, along with options for alternative versions of the relight.

Thanks for your comments. It isn't that difficult to do the research as most of the primary source material is available online. There area couple of excellent secondary sources as well. Firstly Broxup's "Great Civil War in Lancashire" which can be found free online as it is out of copyright now. Although this was published before the First World War it still stands up as a an excellent summary of the primary sources. Secondly there is Stephen Bull's "A General Plague of Madness – The Civil Wars in Lancashire". This covers the same ground as Broxup but includes findings not available to him such as some archaeological findings from Whalley.
