Welcome to the official community website for Kirknewton in Northumberland.
The village nestles amongst the foothills of the Cheviots in the valley of Glendale, with surroundings rich in history and archaeology.
In the 6th Century the village was once at the heart of the powerful Kingdom of Northumbria. The remains of its palace, Ad Gefrin, lie close to Kirknewton.
Today Kirknewton is the only conservation village in Northumberland National Park. The parish is one of the largest geographically in the UK, yet amongst the smallest in population.
Life in Kirknewton village centres around the village hall and the 11th Century church of St Gregory the Great.
It's also a great starting point for the many splendid walks where visitors can enjoy the varied wildlife, flora and fauna, as well as numerous archeological sites. These include the remains of Iron Age hill forts as well as Ad Gefrin.
