Rothbury Civil Parish


Rothbury Civil Parish in Northumberland contains the market town of Rothbury and it's surounding area, including the western parts of the Cragside estate and the hamlets of Thrum Mill and Pondicherry. The population of the parish was 2,107 at the time of the 2011 Census. The ancient Parish of Rothbury covered a much larger geographical area.

District: in 1899 Rothbury Urban District was created, this became Rothbury Rural District in 1935. Local Government reorganisation in 1974 saw the urban districts of Alnwick and Amble and the rural districts of Alnwick and Rothbury merged to become Alnwick District Council. In turn, the district was abolished in 2009, with its responsibilities transferred to Northumberland County Council, which became a unitary authority.
