The Village of Branxton

Visit the quaint Scottish village of Branxton which is located very close to the famous site of the Battle of Flodden, fought on 9 September 1513 between Scotland and England. Walk the footsteps of the soldiers who fought on the Flodden Battle field nearly 500 years ago. It is hard to conceive today of the carnage that took place there where 14,000 men died in an afternoon, at a rate of slaughter that exceeds that of the Battle of the Somme in the First World War.You can walk around with a metal detector and perhaps pick up an invaluable piece of history from this battle. Pallinsburn House, an 18th-century country mansion, stands nearby. The local church, St Paul's at Branxton is also well worth visiting to see the records and notes taken form the battle. Large scale burial pits were dug in the vicinity.
