It was the birthplace of the Victorian artist, John Martin, Northumberland's most famous artist., whose birthplace is a short walk from the village centre. This walk can easily be extended to take in nearby Langley Castle, a former ruin restored in the late 19th century and recently imaginatively converted into a hotel.
The castle played a role in the Jacobite risings of 1715 and 1745. James and Charles, Viscounts Langley and Earls of Derwentwater who lived in the castle, took part in the uprising and were beheaded for treason on Tower Hill in London.
