Dancing at Oakwell Hall, Dec 08

Welcome to the web site of Colonel Valentine Walton's Regiment of Foot, the largest regiment in the award winning Fairfax Battalia.

The regiment was formed in 1974 and is part of the Fairfax Battalia of the Roundhead Association within The English Civil War Society. We portray aspects of military, civilian and domestic life during the English Civil War. More recently De Bergsche Battery from the Netherlands (Holland) have become affiliated with the Waltons and we join together for events. You can find a link to the Battery in our Links section. This site is also available in Dutch.

Walton's have a progressive attitude towards improving our understanding of the era and this is shown in the enthusiasm of our members towards "getting it right". We take pride in seeking accuracy, copying surviving examples of clothing and artifacts. Our regiment contains many skilled crafts people and experts on aspects of period life.

Despite the hard work needed in striving towards accuracy, we also have a relaxed attitude. A sense of humour is essential - we most definitely disprove the theory that you have to be "stuffy" to be interested in authenticity. Our membership is made up of people from all over the country and all walks of life, for example, young students, teachers, archaeologists, IT professionals factory workers and carpenters, many of whom have been in the English Civil War Society for over 20 years and some of whose children have grown up and married in Walton's! The family is important to Waltons members and our children play an active part in the reenactment events, as participants in role plays or just as children enjoying the beautiful surroundings we all get to play in!

This web site is primarily aimed at the general public and we'd like to hear from you. All members of Waltons can access and play a part in keeping the site up to date. If you want to know more after checking out the site, please use the 'Contact' section to request further information or join up and take part.
