In the near future I will be doing a series of posts based on some of the places that were significant for the Battle of Flodden. But for now I shall leave you with the following words.

After the Battle

  1. Great shot Cherie. This is such a good choice for the theme!

    Do Culloden, do Culloden.

  3. I like the old graveyard. The church has great appeal to the eye.
    Excellent take on the theme.

  4. James the English Patriot strikes again. Better to leave Culloden out of it.

      Ahh! Colin, I like to try and give a balanced view on British history ;-)

      I can’t report on Culloden. Even though I have visited I don’t have the photograph to go with my post ;)

    This is a wonderful entry :)

    You did not mention Culloden, CherryPie. Thus, nothing against you and this post.
    According to Culloden, though: I am with Colin.

      I will be writing a bit more on Flodden soon but as you say I will be keeping Culloden out of it. Some books do compare the two, but that is more from a military point of view than anything else.

    What an atmospheric photo — and one that takes me back to the times I spent in England so many years ago now! :)

    Interesting to learn a bit of English History with your photos, CherryPie. In those days, when a leader declared war to another country, he fought in that war, and some (like James 1V of Scotland) died in it. I wish today’s leaders would have to be in the heat of the wars that they declare. Maybe they would think twice…

    AH; Culloden, I remember it well (Yes I am that old):)

    Interesting take on the theme, Cherie. Now looking forward to seeing/learning more about Flodden Field. Have a great w/e.

    Good choice for the theme

  15. ubermouth says:

    I second a Culloden post Cherie. You could draw a picture. :)

    This is a lovely church- what year was it built?

    At Land’s End I saw a church from year 1000 ad and it was still being used for regular service.

  16. Susanne says:

    Lovely picture!

  17. liz says:

    Lovely photo and place. It looks quite remote.

  18. Ellee says:

    It looks very remote. And yes, Culloden must come next.

  19. ubermouth says:

    It was so small like a small house really. I took a photo but lost the film before it was printed.

    What a wonderful choice for this theme. Look forward to the other posts on this topic.

    Have a good week since the weekend has passed.
