The 3 Anglican churches of Carham Parish belong to the Norham Deanery, and are part of the Diocese of Newcastle in Northumberland.  Each church reflects a different style and each has a varied history. 

Two sit in very picturesque locations close to the River Tweed, which is the recognised England/Scotland Border, while the third, St. Paul's in Branxton, lies very close to the Battle site of Flodden Field.

Here in September 1513 many thousands of English and Scots lives were lost. 

A large proportion of this area is now part of an Eco-Museum, that encompasses several local villages and sites of interest. This Border area has a wealth of history to discover, and all three churches are an important part of that history.
