Flodden 500

The 9th of September 2013 marked the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden.

In 1513 the now tranquil fields at Branxton were the site of a bloody and fierce battle between the English and Scots.

The battlefield itself, eight miles west of Wooler, and a couple of miles from the Scottish Border, was where a French-funded Scottish Army led by King James IV met the English army under the command of the Earl of Surrey with explosive and historically far-reaching results.

As part of the programme of projects and events which commemorated the Battle, communities on both sides of the border came together to establish Britain’s first cross-border ecomuseum.

The Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum links over 40 sites nationwide which all share a connection to the story of the Battle of Flodden.  These sites include Castles, Churches, Centres, Monuments, Trusts, the Battlefield itself, and more.  The majority of these are concentrated across North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, but they also spread right across Northern Scotland and as far South as the Mary Rose Trust in Portsmouth.

The Ecomuseum connects the cultures, communities and shared heritage of the Battle across Britain.

Check out www.flodden1513.com to discover all the sites, and to find out more.

Laura Lobster
Attraction
Amble

A female lobster can carry 20,000 eggs under her body for over 9 months and after all that effort only one egg will survive to adulthood. We think she needs a little help! At the hatchery we take local female lobsters carrying eggs (known as berried hens) and capture the eggs as she releases them. The really dangerous time for young lobsters in the sea is the first few weeks after hatching when they are a tasty treat for many other sea creatures. We keep the lobster larvae protected in our tanks and release them when they are safe to return to the sea, then they can burrow into the seabed to hide from things that might eat them.

The hatchery has been set up to be as interactive, informative and engaging as possible for all ages. Visitors can observe the whole process from the eggs hatching to the young lobsters being ready for release. Kids can get hands on experience with our touch tank where our hatchery guides can introduce you to some local creatures.

Come along to the Northumberland Seafood Centre and Hatchery to learn about the lifecycle of a lobster. We have a few lobster related gifts for you to take home too! Or you can combine your visit with a trip to our fresh bar and take home some tasty fish, or even a lobster for your tea! We’re open 7 days per week during peak season from 10am to 4pm. (Please refer to our website for opening times outside this period).

Allen Banks and Staward Gorge was badly damaged during Storm Desmond and unfortunately, remains closed.

The damage resulted in many destabilising landslips, the uprooting of large trees, erosion to the river bank and the much loved wobbly bridge being washed away.
