Prelude to Naseby, 1645

4 June 1645 - After a number of feints towards the north, King Charles and the whole Royalist Army gathers at Newton Harcourt and marches towards Market Harborough. They set up their HQ at Great Glen. Fairfax is given orders to raise the siege of Oxford and march north to join Cromwell and Vermuyden, who were in the Peterborough/Huntingdon area and to "attend the King's motions in such a way as, being at the place, you may judge to be best".
