Battle of Lansdowne

The English Civil War battle of Lansdowne (or Lansdown) was fought on July 5, 1643, near Bath. The Royalists under Lord Ralph Hopton charged the Roundheads under Sir William Waller, routing them, but at such a cost in casualties that Hopton retired to Devizes[?] in Wiltshire, and only decided the issue at Roundway Down a few days later.
