The village is situated in a loop of the River Coquet, about 1mi from the Northumberland coast and lies on the main A1068 road. It is 30mi north of Newcastle, and about 40mi south of the Scottish border. An ancient bridge of two arches crosses the river at Warkworth, with a fortified gateway on the road mounting to the castle.Warkworth is popular with visitors because it has a castle, church, hermitage, walks by the River Coquet, and is close to the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is twinned with Warkworth, New Zealand.HistoryA church has existed on the riverside site in the village for around 1,200 years. St. Lawrence church is a large and almost completely Norman building, which is unique in Northumberland. The first record of the village dates from 737AD when King Ceolwulf of Northumbria gave the church and village to the Abbot and monks of Lindisfarne. In 1174, the church was the scene of a massacre when some 300 people were brutally butchered by Duncan, Earl of Fife during a Scottish raid. John Law, was vicar of Warkworth in the 1770s.
