Oliver Cromwell’s Battery

The Battery has an interesting history stretching back to Oliver Cromwell’s time and beyond.  The logo taken by the Parish Council has as its centrepiece an image from a Saxon bowl found locally.

An interpretation board setting out the history of the site, highlighting some of the important archaeological artefacts found there and clarifying the site’s connection to Oliver Cromwell is located on Oliver’s Battery Road South, close to St Mark’s Church:
