About the memorial: A stone framed, Norman arched window in two main panels containing the names of families engaged in the Battle. . The window was for many year regarded and accepted as a War Memorial to commemorate the Battle of Flodden in 1513. More recent (2013) expert opinion suggests it was designed and built around 1505, eight years before the Battle. The Church was refurbished in 1520 by Lord of Middleton Hall, Richard Assheton. Its inclusion here is in respect to its perceived role as a War Memorial over many years.
