Seven stitched photographs from the Flodden Memorial take in the view extending from Branxton village on the left, Branxton Hill (central) and the hills to the west above Branxton Stead. Ridges of the potato field extend down to the small valley, boggy marshland in 1513, and the main site of the battle. Seems hard to believe that such a mighty clash between Scotland and England could be played out in such peaceful terrain.
The Battle of Flodden Field :: NT8837

Also called the Battle of Branxton Moor. It was fought on September 9th 1513 between an invading Scots army under King James IV and an English army commanded by Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey. It ended in a victory for the English and was the largest battle (in terms of numbers) fought between the two nations.
