This monument was erected to celebrate the decisive battle in the English Civil War. It provides a glimpse of the history with some information regarding the battle. It was built in 1823 by John and Mary Fitzgerald. The slate tablet below the monument has a long inscription commemorating the Battle of Naseby, the decisive battle of the English Civil War fought in the fields of Naseby, Sulby, Sibbertoft, and Clipston parishes on June 14, 1645. 

This place is located in an active cycling route so you may find plenty of cyclists around. There is also the Naseby Battlefield Trail where you can enjoy the cycle routes and even cycle hire.
