Stamford


Stamford is a hamlet in Northumberland located about 4 miles north-east of Alnwick and just over half a mile from the village of Remmington. Stamford is part of the Civil Parish of Rennington; historically it was within the ancient Parish of Embleton. At Stamford are the earthwork remains of a deserted medieval village.[1]

STAMFORD, a township, in the parish of Embleton, union of Alnwick, S. division of Bambrough ward, N. division of Northumberland, 6 miles (N.E. by N.) from Alnwick; containing 90 inhabitants. It comprises 1,560 acres, of which 230 are rich old pasture: limestone and coal are both wrought on the estate, which is the property of the Earl of Tankerville. The village is small, and situated about a mile north-east from Rennington, Embleton lying to the north; it is also about midway between the coast and the road from Belford to Alnwick.
