The hamlets of Longridge Towers and West Longridge in Northumberland are located close to the border with Scotland, about 3 miles south-west of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The large mansion of the Longridge estate was built by Sir Hubert Jerningham in 1876 and is now Longridge Towers School. Historically Longridge was a township in the ancient Parish of Norham.
