Morpeth is a beautiful area, and well known for its long, interesting history. Dating back to the 12th century, the town has a collection of landmarks waiting to be explored, such as Morpeth Chantry, a 13th-century chapel, or Collingwood house, the Georgian home of Admiral Lord Collingwood. Another exclusive feature is the river Wansbeck, running right through the town, viewable from the bridge, which was built in the 1830s. Historically, Morpeth was an infamous trade and market town, and the locals have kept this tradition with the farmers market taking place on the first Saturday of every month, where you can find fresh, homegrown produce such as fruit, vegetables, and meats or treat yourself to homemade luxuries such as wine, and artisan pastries. As well as being an excellent place for shopping, Morpeth is full of nature; with a range of natural rivers, beaches, and country parks waiting to be discovered.
