For its loveliness and beauty alone it is worth a visit; but as the scene of the first fight, a journey there becomes almost a patriotic duty.
Visiting the battlefield
Visit Edgehill & Radway village: www.battleofedgehill.org/edgehillwalk. Here's a simple Edgehill & Radway village walk using Google Maps, with general points of interest about the Edgehill battle, the escarpment and Radway village, along the way. (Distance 2.50 km). Start at the Battle of Edgehill exhibition at Saint Peter's Church, Radway, Warwickshire (and follow the route anticlockwise). With 30 or 45 minutes spent at the exhibition, and perhaps an hour at Radway Tower (Castle Inn) for coffee or beer(!?), this can be a great way to spend 3 or more hours.
Open and use when in Radway. Tested satisfactorily using the O2 network. The link will work in your web browser or open directly in Google Maps (if you have it installed on your device). Initially you may need to click the link twice. Tip: If you experience problems - leave the Google Maps app open - and simply "re-click" the link above (which reloads and refreshes the map).
Although the enclosures have altered the general appearance of the field of battle from that which it bore on that disastrous Sunday […] the main lines can even nowadays be traced with considerable clearness and accuracy.
It [Kineton] is a pleasant but dull little town […] the visitor should proceed at once to survey the battlefield.
