A Lull in the fighting ...

Both sides have been 'licking their wounds' after the battle of Hungerford. The royalists have withdrawn their small garrision from Marlborough and have for now decided to consolidate the rest of their positions in the north of Wiltshire. They have setup a number of lookout posts to keep an eye on movements towards the Pewsey vale from the east and south.

The Parliamentarians have been re-inforcing their horse regiments which took heavy casualties at Hungerford, they are considering their next move - perhaps another raid or an attempt move to take Pewsey.
