To contact him about any family links please e-mail Trevor on firstname.lastname@example.org He also has a great interest in 'The Monarch's Way Association'.
He is well known for his books about walks in Great Britain. Perhaps the trekking about he did in his Family History research led him to write these wonderful and interesting books. He is also probably very poplar with walking boot manufacturers.
It is probably one of the best known stories from the 17th century when Charles 11 was defeated at the Battle of Worcester and he was forced to make his escape for freedom.
Trevor Antill's books 'The Monarch's Way' describes Charles 11's escape route from Worcester through to his escape via Shoreham Harbour in Sussex at the time of the English Civil War. These books enables others to follow in Charles 11's route but without the fear of being captured.
His flight to safety took 6 weeks whilst being hotly pursued by Oliver Cromwells's parliamentary forces. He travelled north at first, through what is known as the Black County, before travelling south though the Cotswolds and the Mendips and eventually he made his way down to Shoreham in Sussex across the South Downs. He was helped by many of his loyal supporters who helped hide him and assisted his passage to freedom.
- The 1st book covers his escape route from Worcester through to Stratford upon Avon, a distance of about 175 miles, after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
- The 2nd book cover the route from Straford upon Avon through to Charmouth in Dorset. This section of his escape covers about 210 miles.
- His 3rd book covers the final route from Charmouth to Shoreham in Sussex where he made his eventual escape to France. This route covers his route over the South Downs.
