|An overview of the battlefield|
|Burton under Moor|
|The Parliamentary Horse prepare to defend Burton|
Hesketh used the time to also regain command of his regiments and deploy to meet the full parliamentary force. Hoping to gain the maximum ground for Sir James Tyldesley's brigade to deploy when they arrived, he once again moved forward. Combat erupted across the field as the two lines engaged. The fight swayed back and forth and when the lines parted, the parliamentary horse had been forced back slightly and Tyldsley's men were deployed ready to drive home the Royalist advantage.
|The Parliamentary reinforcements charge home|
Gradually regiments were worn down and the husbanding of reserves became vital. In this, Sir Victor's brigades were better placed. Sensing that the battle was in the balance, Lord Melchett ordered an all out attack by what remained of his men. Once again the royalists swept forward with a purpose. A stiff fight ensued, but the greater numbers eventually prevailed and when Livesey sent forward his last reserve, Shuttleworth's, they swept away their opponents and the remaining Royalist's quit the field. With his command in a battered state Sir Victor was happy to order a day's rest at Burton, whilst orders were sent for the dragoons to advance and form a garrison for the village.
