Embleton is a small coastal village in Northumberland
that looks out over the North Sea. The town is set back from the windswept coast and sheltered from strong easterly winds by a whinstone ridge.
The town of Embleton consists of a main street and village shop. One of its main features, the 12th century Holy Trinity Church
shows evidence of defensive use - its tower was initially used as a vicarage before being converted after much of the town was destroyed by the Scots during the War of the Roses.
Creighton Memorial Hall serves as Embleton's social hub and is named after Mandell Creighton, parish vicar from 1875-1884. Its other main attractions include Dunstanburgh Castle
. Begun by the Earl of Lancaster in 1313 it is one of the largest fortifications in North England and is owned by the English Heritage. It can be reached via a path which runs along along the beach.

, launched in 2006 allows people to explore Embleton and the surrounding area by way of a selection of trails and paths that follow the impressive coastline and sand dunes. They offer a great opportunity for visitors to truly appreciate the scenic landscape and coastline found in this region.
