Local History: Edlingham

  • Description

    "The parish of Edlingham lies in central Northumberland in a landscape of scarps and vales. The village of Edlingham lies at the centre of the parish and is now a small settlement of mainly 19th century farmhouses and cottages. It lies in the valley of the Edlingham Burn that runs through the length of the parish from its source on Rimside Moor to the River Aln. The village is overlooked by Corby's Crags on the east and, with high ground to the west and south too, it is only to the north that the vale widens out to the valley of the River Aln. In Old English, Edlingham means 'homestead of the sons of Eadwulf' and has its origins in the Anglo-Saxon period....."
