Northumberland has been different sizes at different times throughout its history. Up until 1400, the region included Newcastle upon Tyne before it became a county of itself. It later expanded significantly during the Tudor era, annexing Berwick-upon-Tweed in 1482, Tynedale in 1495, Tynemouth in 1536, Redesdale around 1542 and Hexhamshire in 1572.
Islandshire, Bedlingtonshire and Norhampshire became part of Northumberland in 1844. However, under the Local Government Act of 1972, Tynemouth and North Tyneside were transferred to Tyne and Wear in 1974.
Today, Northumberland is the least densely populated county in England, with only 62 people per square kilometre. Despite this, there are still dozens of excellent Afternoon Tea Northumberland establishments well worth visiting. Why not find out for yourself?
