Local History - Stamfordham

  • Description

    "Stamfordham parish lies in south Northumberland. It has a range of archaeological landscapes, from Hadrian's Wall to post-medieval country houses and parkland. A cup marked stone from a barrow on Pike Hill is the oldest manmade object in the parish. It dates to the Neolithic and was reused in the Bronze Age. A major Neolithic site, if correctly identified, is a long mound recorded in the 19th century on Harlow Hill, but now lost to quarrying. Several Bronze Age discoveries have been made including pieces of metalwork, such as a spearhead hoard found near Cheeseburn Grange and a unique gold ring, possibly of Irish influence..."
