Sir James Tuchet, Lord Audley, leads the Lancastrian cavalry across Wemberton Brook and towards the earl of Salisbury's Yorkist army at the Battle of Blore Heath on 23rd September 1459.

Salisbury had been marching his army south from Yorkshire, to link up with the Duke of York at Ludlow, when they were intercepted by Audley, under instruction to arrest him and stop the two Yorkist forces from joining.

Lured into an attack by a feigned withdrawal by Salisbury, the Lancastrians launched two cavalry charges across the difficult obstacle of the brook, resulting in Audley's death during the intense fighting. A final Lancastrian assault on foot would also fail, their army collapsing into a rout, allowing Salisbury to continue to Ludlow.
