Looking NE towards the beck and over the retreat field.
These images give an impression of the slope on the retreat field. Once they were surrounded at the ford, the English would have moved from left to right on the image above. Fortunately the Norse army was the other side of the water and there was no easy access to allow them to quickly threaten the retreating English, giving them some vital time. The quantity of recycled billets in this area suggest either some heavy fighting or equipment being abandoned in flight.
This is the view looking back from the trees in the picture above.
