Devizes: setup for the Parliamentarian Assault 'game'

The parliamentarian assault on Devizes was from the direction of Coates hill (east) across the 'town green'.  To stage a game of this I've had to attempt to show part of the town on the table. A medieval street plan below is still approximately correct for Devizes at the time of the civil war, I'll just have the section of the town shown in the rectangle on the table.

The old town defence bank/ditch (outer thick line) I've assumed would still have been present, but disused with the ditch silted up and used as a property boundary which I'll represent by a hedge line for simplicity.

Next post will be the game report of the assault ...
