The Exhibition consists of two information towers, an interactive touch screen with films, maps and photos of the battlefield today and some of the artefacts found during the metal detecting survey by the Battlefields Trust 2005-7. Around 1,200 bullets were located along with buttons, badges and coins. There are also four mannequins dressed in period costume - a Pikeman, a village woman and a child, and Captain Kingsmill who was killed in battle.

David Beaumont from the Battle of Edgehill management team said the battle was significant because it was the first time King Charles I was challenged. It was to change the course of English history forever.
