The Tow Law Army raised camp at dawn and pillaged a couple of North Yorkshire villages before breakfast. They moved south west, determined and eager. Scouts sent out from Silsden returned from the hills, they brought news.... they reported Black and White nylon shirts, moving fast, thousands of them. The local menfolk quickly returned to building the remaining barricades. Women and children were hurried into the wagons and despatched to Skipton Castle. The invaders with the Big Brown Ale banner had one blood-thirsty objective.... The Vase! Silsden would protect it to the last man standing.
