Latest reviews | Events in Cramlington | 10 Places to Stay

Nine miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne and six miles southeast of Morpeth in Northumberland, in north east England, in the deanery of Bedlington is Cramlington. Thought to be a town of Anglo Saxon or perhaps Danish origin as the word ‘ton’ means town and it has been suggested to mean a homestead where the Scandinavians called Little Cram farmed. The first recorded entry from the manor of Cramlington is from 1135, when the land was granted to Nicholas de Grenville. Since the twelfth century, the town’s history has been predominately rural with several farms and homesteads, until the early nineteenth century when the building of a number of coal mine shafts in the vicinity of the town changed things. The first shaft was sunk in 1824 but the town remained small until it was proclaimed a ‘new town’ in 1964 when it was developed into large housing estates and with its efficient bus, rail and road network has effectively became a suburb of Newcastle. During the first World War, the 36th Home Defence Squadron was formed at Cramlington in 1916, subsequently becoming an important base for military planes and airships and later featured in one of W.E. Johns Biggles books.
