On this day in history, 17th June 1497, the Cornish Rebellion was brought to an end by the Battle of Blackheath, which is also known as the Battle of Deptford Bridge, when Henry VII's forces were triumphant against the rebels.

Rebel leader Michael An Gof was forced to surrender after losing somewhere in the region of 1-2,000 men to the king's forces led by Giles, Lord Daubeney. Members can click here to read more about the battle.
