Hedgeley Moor ( )

On his way to the border of Scotland to meet a group of envoys to discuss peace, John Neville (Lord Montagu), brother of Warwick, clashed with a Lancastrian force of similar size. During the battle, the Lancastrian wings commanded by Lords Hungerford and Roos fled leaving Sir Ralph Percy with the only holding force. Percy's troops were crushed. Montagu continued north and the Duke of Somerset led the remaining Lancastrian army south to Hexham.
