All the Kings Horses at Audley End

On Monday we visited Audley End near Saffron Walden in Essex. We've been here plenty of times before but not for several years. This weekend they were hosting a special event "All the Kings Horses" for a Restoration period reenactment. The theme is 1670 and King Charles II has recently purchased Audley End and is hosting a horse race on his way Newmarket. The Kings Cavaliers show off their exceptional horsemanship while the Merry Monarch indulges in the fun of the Restoration period.

I'm thinking "Ray will love this, all curly wigs and frilly cuffs..."

Ready for a charge

At the canter

A figure ratio that every wargamer will recognise! 

I've seen these guys somewhere before...?

Big flags. It took skill to handle these properly, especially in high winds. 

Its a pity the weather was a bit inclement on Monday otherwise we would have stayed longer.


  1. You're right, I do love a curly wig or two!

    1. Makes up for the general lack of natural hair on our heads!

  2. Almost makes me want to get back into Re-enactment
