They will not advance until either Beresford or Picton has broken the enemy line

British Right

Picton moves his infantry forward to attack the town

His hussars move forward to counter the French cavalry

The artillery unlimber and fire on the town, but with no effect

French artillery is taking position to the right of the town to fire on Hill

His artillery continue to fire on the town, but with no effect

His infantry advance over the bridge and exchange fire with the garrison

The British artillery is not proving very effective, so the infantry are sent forward
