On the Northumberland coast of the North Sea at the estuary of the Aln river, just over four miles southeast of Alnwick, lies the historic village of Alnmouth. Supposedly established by de Vesci, owner of Alnwick Castle in 1150, the Normans laid out the town and it quickly prospered to the extent that it was, in 1207, granted a charter for a port and a market and it quickly became recognized as the most important medieval seaport between the Tyne and the Tweed. Despite over 300 years of border raids, the village prospered and during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it reached its pinnacle. A few ships were built there, with the port owning ten, for which grain was the main export and several granaries still stand today. Smuggling, once notorious, declined with the building of a customs house. In 1806 however, the river broke its course after a fierce storm, cutting off part of the village. As the new course was not as deep, the port declined and with the arrival of the railway, the days of Alnmouth as a harbour were ended although there were benefits from the visitors which now arrived by rail turning Alnmouth into the popular and picturesque,seaside village it is today.
