Otterburn Northumberland


Otterburn, Northumberland.

Otterburn is a small village in Northumberland, 31 miles (50km) from Newcastle and 16 miles (26 km) from the Scottish border, the name simply means otter stream.
In 1388 the area was the scene of a major battle and a memorial to the battle, the Percy Cross, stands outside the village. Near to the village is an Iron Age Hillfort.  
Otterburn contains Otterburn Castle (originally called Otterburn Tower) which was built in 1830 although it may have incorporated a 13th century tower house. It is now a hotel.
St John the Evangelist's church was built between 1855 and 1857.
Otterburn is near to a large army training range.
