In the aftermath of his terrible defeat in the Battle of Naseby, King Charles I withdrew to his strongholds on the Welsh marches. Hearing that his one remaining port, Chester, was under siege, he went to attempt to relieve it, but was intercepted at the Battle of Rowton Heath. This proved another striking victory for the Parliamentarians, who successfully prevented Charles coming to the aid of Chester, and thus also secured the city for Parliament.
