Fighting Fund for 500th Anniversary; Battle Plans Boosted by Lottery Grant


Byline: Tony Henderson Environment Editor ? 0191 201 6224 ? tony.henderson@ncjmedia.co.uk

WIDE-ranging plans to mark the 500th anniversary of a major Northumberland battle have been backed by an PS887,300 lottery grant, it was announced today.

The battle of Flodden was fought on September 9, 1513. It was the conclusion of the bloody medieval battles, and the last occasion on which a British monarch - James IV of Scotland - was killed on the field.

The award from the Heritage Lottery Fund has gone to the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum Ltd, a not-for-profit company established to coordinate the heritage and legacy of the battle, as well as mark its quincentenary.

The project is also a great demonstration of partnership working on a cross-border theme."

Lord Joicey of Ford & Etal Estates, on whose land the battle site is mostly located and who is a director of the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum, added: "It is wonderful that the Heritage Lottery Fund has agreed to support the application by the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum to ensure that Flodden not only reaches a wide audience amongst schoolchildren, amateur researchers and all those who want to increase their skills in archaeology and palaeography but also to build up the geographical and cultural connections through enlarging the Ecomuseum itself.

"The significance of Flodden in the story of our nations is too often overlooked."

The project will focus not just on the tens of thousands of lives lost during the campaign but also the impact the battle had on the culture of today's border communities.

Flodden 500 will create learning, participation and volunteering opportunities for people in all aspects of Flodden heritage. …
