17th February 1461

Henry Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, leads the Lancastrian army past St. Peter's church and out of St. Albans to attack the left wing of the Yorkist army, commanded by Lord Montagu, on Bernard's Heath.

Montagu's brother, Richard, Earl of Warwick - known to history as the 'Kingmaker' - was in overall command of the Yorkist army and had set up his formidable artillery defences to face north, the expected direction of attack, but this would prove a catastrophic mistake when the Lancastrians altered their approach to come through the centre of St. Albans and fall onto the Yorkist flank.

The battle lasted until the end of the day when Warwick's surviving forces managed to slip away from Nomansland Common in the gathering darkness.

However, the triumphant Lancastrian army was unable to consolidate their victory when they were denied entry into London, so they returned north, closely followed by Warwick and Edward, Earl of March - fresh from his victory at Mortimer's Cross and now proclaimed King Edward IV - to meet once again in combat at the decisive Battle of Towton.
