Elsdon, Northumberland :: Shared Description

Elsdon is a village and civil parish in the English county of Northumberland about 10 miles (16 km) to the south-west of Rothbury. The name is derived from the Old English meaning Elli's valley.

Formerly the capital of Redesdale, Elsdon contains a very fine example of a Motte and Bailey Castle, and a near perfect Pele Tower (fortified house of a type found in the border country) which is a private residence.

Geographically, Elsdon lies in Redesdale and, as a market town, was once the primary settlement in the area.
