Alnwick

Alnwick is a market town in north Northumberland, England. The town's population was just over 8,000 at the 2001 census, rising to 8,116 at the 2011 Census, while the former Alnwick district's population was (in 2001) 31,029.According to Country Life, October 2002, "Alnwick is the most picturesque market town in Northumberland, and the best place to live in Britain". The town is situated largely on the south bank of the River Aln, 32mi south of Berwick-upon-Tweed and the Scottish border, 5mi inland from the North Sea at Alnmouth and 34mi north of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.The town dates back to about AD 600, and over the centuries has thrived as an agricultural centre; as the location of Alnwick Castle and home of the most powerful medieval northern baronial family, the Earls of Northumberland; as a staging post on the Great North Road between Edinburgh and London, and latterly as a modern rural centre and dormitory town. The fabric of the town centre has changed relatively little, and retains much of its original character; but the town has, in recent years, seen some growth, with several housing estates covering what had been pasture, and new factory and trading estate developments along the roads to the south of the town.
