The Monarch’s Way –
The escape of Charles II after the Battle of Worcester
Powick Bridge, Where the Monarch’s Way begins.
The 625 miles of the Monarch’s Way links various towns, villages, country houses and inns associated with the then future King Charles II’s escape from Worcester in 1651. The route uses rights-of-way (sometimes sharing other national routes like The Cotswold Way) This long-distance path is the longest way-marked inland walk in the UK and it passes through Chaddesley Corbett as it goes north and then it’s southern section is though Dodford.
John Price has extensive knowledge about the passage of the prince, soon to be King Charles II and this historic path. He is mentioned in The Daily Telegraph “In the footsteps of a king: walking the Monarch’s Way”.
You will recognise so many local places in this talk and learn something new at each turn.
It is planned that a History Society Summer Walk 2024 will in part follow the section of the Monarch’s Way that crosses our parish. You too can follow the footsteps of a king who regained his throne.
