Welcome to the web site of Colonel Holcroft Blood's Ordnance.

This group is based on the artillery that fought under Colonel Blood's command at the Battle of Blenheim in 1704. It re-enacts the various wars from the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 through to the end of the War of the Spanish Succession in 1714. Blood's has its own late 17th century gun "Babel" and provides displays of artillery, musketry and a living history encampment. Do click on any heading to the left to find out more.
