Description"Elsdon is a village and civil parish in the English county of Northumberland about 10 miles (16 km) to the south-west of Rothbury. The name is derived from the Old English meaning Elli's valley. Formerly the capital of Redesdale, Elsdon contains a very fine example of a Motte and Bailey Castle, and a near perfect Pele Tower (fortified house of a type found in the border country) which is a private residence. Geographically, Elsdon lies in Redesdale and, as a market town, was once the primary settlement in the area." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
