The Flodden Peace Centre was opened during the 500th anniversary year of the Battle of Flodden. The Centre is based at the Crookham United Reformed Church, which is within walking distance of the battlefield. The Peace and Reconciliation centre will serve as a reminder that we continue to live in a world of conflict, and aims to reflect on how to achieve global peace.
Flodden Peace Centre
The Flodden Peace Centre at Crookham invites visitors to reflect upon moments of conflict, such as the terrible slaughter at the Battle of Flodden 500 years ago, and to search how, in today’s world, mediation, justice, reconciliation and peace can be encouraged into practical applications. The Peace Centre has a Peace Garden in its grounds, free to access 24 hours a day. From time to time the Centre also organises peace-themed events.
