The attractive village of Embleton has a long history, including frequent invasions by the Scots during the Wars of the Roses. The village dates back to pre-medieval times, and its Norman church, the Church of the Holy Trinity, was built in the late 12th century. It also had a thriving whinstone quarry in the 19th century and a long whinstone ridge still provides welcome shelter from the driving east winds. The Heritage Trails Project has been set up in recent years to put the focus on the history of the parish and visitors can learns about the village and its environs on a fascinating variety of well-designed walks. These range from a short stroll to a six-mile trek, and suit all abilities. The area is renowned for excellent golf courses, and there are many other local attractions on offer. Chief among these is Dunstanburgh Castle, a dramatic and ancient ruin that looms over Embleton Bay. The magnificent Alnwick Castle and Garden, and the gardens of Howick Hall, are also nearby.
