Lovely picnic spot at an historic site
Posted 11th April, 2019
If you are on the Northumberland castle trail you might enjoy visiting the tiny village of Edlingham west of Alnwick.
Drive west along the B6341 toward Rothbury and you will find the castle and church on your right - down a bank.
You can park near the church.
Feel free to walk around the ruins of what was once an impressive (and expensive) fortress.
Originally a manor house converted with fortifications against the Scots in the 14th century.
