Church of St. Paul, Branxton


St Paul's is the Parish church of Branxton, Northumberland. Parts of the church, the chancel arch in particular, date back to the late 12th or early 13th century, but most of the building is from 1849 when the church was largely rebuilt.[1] Some of the thousands of English and Scots who died in the battle of Flodden Field in 1513 were burried in the churchyard at St Pauls. In 2013 a memorial door was installed in the church to commemorate the lives lost at Flodden on the 500th anniverasry of thebattle.[2] The church is a Grade II listed building.
