AT MOSELEY OLD HALL
SATURDAY 6 and SUNDAY 7 SEPTEMBER
DAYS 4 and 5
It was, due to the troop activity in the area, deemed unsafe for Charles II to remain at Boscobel and he is transferred to yet another safe house at what was then known as Moseley Hall which is equipped with secret hiding places.
Historic documents disagree as to whether Charles spent Sunday night at the Hall or whether he succumbed to his blisters and spent the night in a cottage on the way, but he is definitely there by Monday.
A plan is formulated at this stage to take advantage of a pass issued before the battle to a local Lady, Mrs Jane Lane to visit her cousin south of Bristol who was pregnant. It was agreed that Charles should act as servant to Mrs Lane and ride with her to Bristol, which at that time was a busy port and offered the possibility of a ship.
