Flodden Battlefield Site
Flodden Battlefield Site
The site of one of the most fateful battles in the long history of conflict between the Scots and English in this part of Northumberland. The Battle of Flodden, also known as the Battle of Branxton Moor, took place on 9 September, 1513, and saw the forces of James IV of Scotland crushed by English under the command of the Earl of Surrey.
The battlefield site is marked by a large memorial cross, and there are interpretive panels at several places around the perimeter of the site, telling the tale of how the battle unfolded. There is also a waymarked path covering almost 2 miles, allowing visitors to take in several of the most important locations.
