Charles was disguised as a servant when he travelled through Bridport in 1651. He stayed briefly at the 'George Inn' in East Street for a meal. In this painting the Parliamentarian troops and their captain are shown in the foreground, while the figures right at the back of the picture exiting on horseback are Charles and his companions. The professed subject is therefore almost invisible right at the back, while his pursuers stand centre stage.
