The battle broke down into three parts.
On the Royalist right their C-in-C and four units of horse faces off against ten units of Parliamentary horse. When cornered, all four Royalist horse units charge, initially forcing several units of Parliamentary cavalry to retire but are eventually overwhelmed by weight of numbers, leaving the Parliamentary horse to move to attack the Royalist foot from behind.
In the centre, both sides foot move towards the hill, the Royalist foot angling its advance to hit the left of the Parliamentary line. One Royalist unit manages to break two Parliamentary units in close combat and, although down to 'five' strength, pushes through the line. However, eventually superior fire power of the Parliamentarians breaks two Royalist foot units.
