On 22 October royalist forces entered Edgecote near Banbury, and a rest was ordered for twentyfour hours, whilst forces were to be detached to assault the enemy garrison at Banbury. Whilst the royalists prepared to establish billets in the general vicinity, a party of Prince Rupert's foragers clashed with parliamentary foragers at Wormleighton. The royalists had the advantage of surprise, and a reconnaissance party set out for Kineton, They discovered the proximity of the bulk of Essex's army, and reported back. Orders were issued for the royalist army to draw into battle order on Edgehill on 23 October.
