The Flodden Wall was completed in 1560 to protect the city against an English invasion that never came. After Scottish forces were defeated and King James IV was killed at the Battle of Flodden in 1513.
Wonder if it will be possible to respond to this?

And the Scots never had to use the wall, after piling and mortaring all those stones!  :O

They needed that wall at Culloden rather than at Flodden. :'(

Say... there's a limerick there... :)

 

The Scots, by the English down-trodden,

Built a wall (with much effort) called Flodden.

But alas for the Scots,

When they LAST traded shots,

They needed that wall at Culloden.
