Description"This feature and Monday Cleugh on the south side of Harehope Hill, also visible in this photograph, were formed by melt water from the Cheviot ice sheet. The direction of flow indicated by these features was north-west to south-east. In 1402 this area was the scene of the Battle of Homildon Hill. The Scots, led by Archibald, Earl of Douglas, were defeated by the Earl of Northumberland and his son Harry Hotspur. A contingent of English archers in Monday Cleugh rained a devastating shower of arrows on the Scots who were standing on the open slopes of Humbleton Hill. The battle is immortalised in Shakespeare`s play, `Henry IV'." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2009, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
