Troops Marching through Stratford


Towards the end of the Guild's March talk primarily about the Duke of Monmouth, we heard about William of Orange landing in Torbay in 1688 and marching to London with his troops. But did you know that their 340 mile route brought them through Stratford sub Castle?

15,000 Dutch troops would have taken a long time to pass through our village. They came along Mill Lane from crossing the river, turned right along the Stratford Road, then left at Dairy Cottage and up the path to Old Sarum, skirting it to its east then along the track to Shepherd’s Cottage en route to Great Durnford.
