ECW in the North East

Afternoon folks,
Was just wondering if anyone knew of any active Civil War groups in the Durham area? I had a look on the SK website but couldn't find any dedicated groups in the recruiting in this area. I would prefer a parliamentarian unit if anyone knows of one.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Cheers

Fenwick's ECWS used to be strong on Tyneside. Not sure these days. Try the ECWS website.

Most ECWS groups seem to be pretty scattered these days as far as I can tell.
We're in Somerset, a lot of the group are near Oxford or Newbury, but we have members in Shrewesbury, Herefordshire...

Does mean we only meet at musters and the like, but that's the way it goes.

Not the North East, but this is on soon if you want an opportunity to meet the English civil war society. It's the furthest north for a major event I've seen in a while.

Not sure about Sealed Knot activities but the Archaeology Department at Durham University have been working on the remains of Scottish Soldiers found buried under the Library. (Nothing to do with Cluedo) Later this year, the bodies will be re-buried in a graveyard nearby because the Cathedral are too mean to give them a space inside. They say that there can't be new burials at the Cathedral.... 365 years ain't all that new.
Keep an eye on the University web and you'll probably be able to meet up with people from the Sealed Knot. One this to remember is that the Civil War was a long time ago so it is considered bad form to punch Royalists, Catholics, Presbyterians or Arminians.
