Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Byfield is a village and civil parish forming part of the Daventry district in Northamptonshire, England.Byfield, with Westhorp, was mentioned in the Domesday Book. It has been close to many of the important events in history. During the Wars of the Roses, in 1469 the battle of Edgecote took place, only three miles from Byfield. Likewise during the English Civil War, the battles of Edgehill in 1642 and Naseby in 1645 must have had an impact on the local citizenry. In the Second World War the area around Byfield had numerous airfields and other military installations which would have had a considerable, and in some cases, long-lasting effect.show more
