Latest reviews | Events in Embleton | 10 Places to Stay

Seven miles north of Alnwick and one mile inland from the sea in Northumberland in northeast England, is the small rural village of Embleton. The name is though to have originated from the old name ‘Emuldune’ meaning “hill of the caterpillar” due to the whinstone ridge which shelters the village from the sea, bearing resemblance to a caterpillar. Embleton Bay is close by with Dunstanburgh Castle at the southern end of the bay. The village of Embleton dates back earlier than medieval times and suffered much from the ravages of the Scottish border raids. For many years, local farmers paid sixpence as an annual fee to drive their stock into nearby Dunstanburgh Castle for safety. The Church of Holy Triinity is a late Norman church from the twelfth century that was later restored during Victorian times. In the mid ninteenth century, Embleton had a fine whinstone quarry, owned and run by the Appleby family which at one time employed more than forty people. The quarry sold whinstone setts and chippings, tarmac and building stones throughout the county and beyond – the Mersey tunnel was paved with whinstone setts from the Embleton quarry. After over a hundred years of prosperity, the quarry was finally closed in 1961 when it became uneconomic.
