Battlefield 1403

Upper Battlefield


A Shrewbury Original since

Battlefield 1403 is more than just a farm shop, it’s one of the best butcheries in the UK, a well stocked deli counter, a shop full of speciality great tasting local goodies, an exhibition celebrating the Battle of Shrewsbury, a Falconry Centre—and a café full of homemade fresh food.

The farm shop stands on a site rich in history. Over 600 years ago one of the bloodiest battles was fought here. Today Battlefield 1403 is a bustling farm shop, butchery, deli, café and exhibition. After visiting the shop at Battlefield 1403, walk off one of our delicious sausage rolls with a walk around the boundary of the 100-hectare battlefield.

A Shrewsbury Original

The family have farmed the estate since 1853 when the Albrighton Hall and surrounding area was bought by William Hanbury Sparrow. The Albright Hussey Farm was added in 1919 and most recently Battlefield Farm in 1999. The present owner is 6th generation.

Our Farm Shop provides an outlet for a range of excellent foods which are sourced locally. They have low food miles, full traceability and great taste. Seasonality, freshness and high standards of production are important to us.

In the Battlefield 1403 Kitchen, we produce an extensive range of ready meals, soups, desserts, cakes and traybakes. We use our own beef and lamb (when available) produced on the estate and prepared by our butchers – in many of our meals in both the shop and the cafe.

You will notice that anything we make in our kitchen and sell in the shop is branded as ‘From the Kitchen’ – which means that it is prepared and made in our own kitchen. We produce an extensive range of ready meals, soups, desserts, cakes and traybakes.

We have a full calendar of events throughout the year, including Pudding Clubs, Family Fun Days and Cider and Sausage Mini-Fest 2018. Please see the events page on our website for more information.
