Les Miles des Marches is based on the Shropshire Marches and was created in 1991. We are a Norman group, historically linked to the overlordship of fitz Scorob, who held Richards Castle in 1066. We also cover the Civil War between Steven and Matilda, up to the rivalries of Richard and John. In 2008, we expanded our period of interest and created
The Shrewsbury Levy, dateline 1403 (Battle of Shrewsbury) up to the War of the Roses. In this period we represent a town levy.
Les Miles des Marches / Shrewsbury Levy is a thriving local Shropshire group, comprising of a structured military unit, an active living history encampment of a dozen structures where authentic medieval crafts are portrayed, we have an active archer unit and an enthusiastic banquet committee. We train our military in Shrewsbury every Tuesday night.
Why not come along to one of our training sessions for a free go or attend one of our regular monthly meetings to meet the group?
