English Heritage have registered the site of the 1469 Wars of the Roses battle at Edgcote on the Register of Historic Battlefields, only the second addition to the list in recent times.

The addition of Edgcote to the list gives it additional protection in planning processes and it is also thought that it may impact on the planned HS2 route which runs through parts of the battlefield.
