Clennell


Clennell is a village in Upper Coquetdale, Northumberland by the River Alwin, located just under a mile north east of Alwinton. The settlement centres on the former manor house, Clennell Hall, now a hotel. There is also Clennell Hall Riverside Holiday Park for caravans and tents. Clennell was one of the Ten Towns of Coquetdale which owed service to Harbottle Castle - first mentioned in the grants to the monks of Newminster by the Umfravilles, who were the Barons of the area after the Norman Conquest.[1] It is thought that the medieval village at Clennell was cleared away to make way for the park and gardens surrounding Clennell Hall. The medieval ridges and furrows of the village's field system are still evident.[2] The village gives its name to Clennell Street, an ancient track which crosses between valleys in Scotland and England.
