Rothbury is a town to the North West of Morpeth with a distinguished past and a bright future. It has previously been a centre of livestock trading and horse racing. Rothbury's local church holds the oldest carving representing the Ascension of Christ in Great Britain, and nearby Cragside was the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectric power.
Rothbury is surrounded by many smaller rural villages, including Whittingham, Glanton, Elsdon, Rothley, Harbottle and Hepple. These communities add up to a beautiful and distinctive area with many opportunities in its future.
Rothbury is an ideal base for tourists exploring the Coquet Valley and Northumberland National Park, catered to by the welcoming pubs, cafes and restaurants.
