In North Wales, the royalists held firm control, and Chester was a garrison city, so that Wales was protected by a chain of fortified points along its border. Only Pembroke and Tenby remained in Parliamentarian hands, although Chester was threatened by a strong parliamentary party within its county. On 28 January the royalists were routed at Nantwich, which place was then garrisoned and fortified by Sir William Brereton, but Welsh troops poured into Chester itself to strengthen it. On 21 February at Tarporley there was a drawn action, and on 13 March forces from Chester were defeated in an attempt on Middlewich.

There were major garrisons in Sheffield and Doncaster, and at York which was the headquarters of civil and military government. On 10 February, cavalry out of Hull destroyed a royalist contingent at Kilham near Driffield, and on the 12th the raiders took Bridlington. Turning back towards Hull, they won a third success at Driffield, in all cases taking many prisoners. On the 20th, the raiders (perhaps the same body of Hull cavalry) stormed Whitby under the noses of the royalists in Scarborough. Reacting to these niggling reverses, Belasyse redeployed his forces, perhaps stung by a successful attack on Stamford Bridge, near York.

Cavendish’s successor as royalist commander, Sir William Widdrington, was advancing with forces from Newark and elsewhere towards Bolingbroke where Manchester had laid siege, and the royalist advance was covered all the way. On 11 October the two armies met at Winceby, resulting in a decisive and costly defeat for the royalists. Newcastle abandoned the siege of Hull partly in consequence of this setback. Gainsborough was evacuated, and Lincoln was taken by parliamentary troops, in the wake of Winceby.
