Northumberland is the northernmost ceremonial county in the North East of England and it has an approximate population of 316,000. Morpeth is the county town of Northumberland, having replaced the traditional county town of Alnwick in 1981, although there is still much contestation as to which settlement is the de jeur county town.
Northumberland House Prices
Average house prices relating to an area the size of the entire county of Northumberland can obviously only tell you so much. There are many variations across the region, which is better viewed as a collection of separate local housing markets rather than one large market. A good example of this is offered by the difference between areas such as, for instance, Riding Mill and Cambois. Residents of Northumberland will know that there is little point in comparing similar houses in these areas, due to the fact that average house prices in the former area are over six hundred thousand pounds higher than those in the latter.
Having said that, for what it is worth, average house prices in Northumberland are currently rising by between 2 and 3% per year, depending on the house price to which you adhere.
However, while this modest level of average house value increase could at least be described as slow and steady, the main problems in the Northumberland housing market become evident when one realises that average house prices in the area still remain around 3% lower than they were in 2007, following the onset of the global financial crisis and the housing market crash that followed hot on its heels. As such, there are still a great deal of homeowners in Northumberland who still find themselves in the unenviable position of being in negative equity.
Northumberland Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
Northumberland is the least densely populated county in England and has seemingly endless acres of unspoilt natural beauty. Much of its Moorlands have been designated as a National Park. This, combined with its historic significance, has led to the development of a successful tourism industry in recent times.
Northumberland’s Coastal Plains, the Cheviot Fringe, the Cheviots themselves, the Northumberland Sandstone Hills, Mid Northumberland, Tyne Gap, Hadrian’s Wall, the Border Moors and Forests and the Tyne and Wear Lowlands, some of which lie only partially in Northumberland, are all recognised as either Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty or protected as National Park.
The county also possesses many cultural traditions not found anywhere else in England, such as the rapper sword dance, the Clog dance and the Northumbrian smallpipe. It also has its own tartan and is, or at least was once, immensely famous for its border ballads, among which Chevy Chase is probably the most exalted.
Northumberland Tradition & History
Northumberland was heavily fortified by the Romans, most notably with the construction of Hadrian’s Wall, and, following the Anglo-Saxon invasions in the 5th century, formed part of the Anglican kingdom of Bernicia, which later united with Deiria to form Northumbria. Northumbria originally stretched from the Humber to the Forth but the area north of the River Tweed was ceded to Scotland in 1018.
Being located on Anglo-Scottish border, Northumberland has witnessed many battles over the centuries, a fact attested to by its possession of more castles than any other county in England.
Due to the location of Lindisfarne within the county’s borders, Northumberland is often viewed as the cradle of Christianity in England, though some areas can claim earlier recorded Christian foundations and practices. Lindisfarne was home to both the Lindisfarne Gospels and St Cuthbert. It was also the site of the most famous and one of the earliest Viking incursions into the British Isles.
Known as a hotbed of rebellion, thanks largely to the Earls of Northumberland status as Palatinate powers throughout the Mediaeval and Early Modern eras, as well as the area’s staunch Catholicism and Jacobite friendly sentiments, Northumberland went on to flourish throughout the Industrial Revolution as a direct consequence of the abundance of coal in the region.
