Wooler Northumberland


Wooler, Northumberland.

Wooler is a small town on the edge of the Northumberland National Park not far from the England/Scotland border.
In 1402 at the nearby Humbleton Hill a major battle took place between English and Scottish forces which resulted in a defeat for the Scottish army and is referenced by Shakespeare in the play Henry the 1V part one, in which Northumbrian Harry Hotspur is the hero.  
Humbleton Hill is also the site of an iron age hillfort.  
The town is popular with walkers and is known as the " The Gateway to the Cheviots".
The name Wooler is thought to derive from old English meaning Wella, "well spring" and ofer, "ridge".
