Wooler is an ancient market town and parish in Glendale, six miles east from the foot of the Cheviot Hills and sixteen miles from Berwick. The only market town in Glendale, Wooler was given to Robert de Musco Campo by Henry I in the twelfth century. When the family line expired, the land changed hands many times before coming to the Grey family who in turn passed it to the Earls of Tankerville, who are still the principal landowners to this day. In 1402 a famous battle was fought at Homildon Hill, between the Scots, led by the Earl of Douglas, and the English, led by Sir Henry ‘Hotspur’ Percy. The English archers were instrumental in winning the battle and over the centuries, many coffins and skeletons have been discovered in the field where the battle took place. Wooler was burned down in 1722 but was rebuilt and went on to grow in size and population. The weekly and annual markets providing a valuable outlet for the largely agricultural area with its cattle and sheep farms as well as grains, especially corn. Close proximity to the Cheviots means that today, Wooler is popular amongst walkers, campers, hikers and ramblers and each summer the Glendale Festival attracts many tourists.
