Amble

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Northumberland  /  Amble
Amble is a town, civil parish and seaport on the North Sea coast of Northumberland, England. It lies at the mouth of the River Coquet, and the nearby Coquet Island is visible from its beaches and harbour. The civil parish is called Amble by the Sea, and in 2001 had a population of 6,044, reducing slightly to 6,025 at the 2011 Census.EtymologyThere are two suggested origins of the place-name Amble. One theory suggests a Gaelic origin from Am Béal, meaning "tidal inlet", and is attributed to the historical presence of Irish missionaries in the area who spoke that language despite most of the local population not doing so. An alternate theory, given by the Institute for Name-Studies at Nottingham University, is an Old English origin of Amma's/Anna's bile, meaning "Amma's/Anna's headland".There are sources indicating that the name and variants thereof – such as Ambell and Ambhill – may have been in use as long ago as 1203 AD. Northumberland was not recorded in the Domesday Book.
