One mile from the North Sea in mid-Northumberland in north-east England, is the village of Warkworth, seven miles southeast of Alnwick and fourteen miles northeast of Morpeth. It stands within the parish of Coquet and is surrounded on three sides by a river of the same name. There has been a church at the site of the present church for nearly 1200 years, the first record dating from 737AD when King Ceolwolf of Northumbria gave the church and village to the Abbot and monks of Lindisfarne. The Norman church was built as a place of worship during dangerous times and the nave is thought to be the longest Norman nave in the county. On top of a hill and seen from miles around, stands Warkworth Castle, the ancient seat of the Percy family, Earls and Dukes of Northumberland and thought to be where Harry Hotspur set out from in Shakespeare’s Henry V. On the river below the castle, lies Warkworth Hermitage, a chapel carved in stone that is only reachable from the river, by boat, built by the knight Sir Bertram to commemorate the loss of his lady and his brother. Known for its salmon fisheries and popular with anglers, the first salmon taken from the river Coquet each season is presented to the Duke of Northumberland.
