Welcome to Alnmouth

Welcome to our website, we hope it will give you an insight into one of the most beautiful villages in The U.K. (in our opinion) and what our role as The Burgage Holder’s of Alnmouth Common means in the modern world

The Burgage Holders of Alnmouth Common

The world is changing and these are challenging times, with the insistence of clarity within our public bodies and possible changes afoot as we leave our European cousins.

The ancient obligations of the Burgage Holders of Alnmouth Common are changing too and we are attempting to rise to the challenge of our role in modern day Alnmouth whilst holding true to our core beliefs.

Our new website will, we hope, make interested parties aware of the work we do, not only in conservation and maintenance of the common land, but how we support local charities and village organisations.

Take a moment to browse our website, it too will be ever changing, as we get used to modern technology we will be able to bring you up to date with both Village and Burgage happenings and news on a regular basis.

Conservation

The Burgage Holders of Alnmouth Common like to work closely with both local and national environmental groups and Government agencies in an effort to preserve and promote natural habitat encouraging species of wild life to flourish on the common land. At the moment we are working on improving the marshland with the help of the A.N.O.B.  You will have noticed that some areas have been cleared making way for new Spring growth.  Keep an eye out to see if  our specially created habitat is attracting more wild life.

Hullabaloo on the hill 2018

 

Alnmouth has a strong active community, we were able to celebrate that fact with our very first (and hopefully not our last) Hullabaloo on the hill.  A day of music, magic and mayhem, enhanced by WI teas and prosecco (by the Hindmarsh Hall) the sun shone all day, despite having the wettest two days this summer before and after.  A lovely day for old friends to catch up and for new friends to be made, we even finished up with a bit of dancing in the tipi.  Thank you to everybody who attended, you made our first event a great success!
