Historically, Hexham has been the site of much unrest. It suffered significant damage during the border wars between the kings of Scotland and England, including attacks from William Wallace in 1297.
In 1312, Robert the Bruce demanded and received £2,000 from the town in order for it to be spared from raids. Decades later, in 1346, it was sacked by King David II of Scotland.
During the Wars of the Roses, the Battle of Hexham took place nearby. It also became the location where Jacobite James Radcliffe, 3rd Earl of Derwentwater, raised the standard for James Francis Edward Stuart.
Nowadays, however, things have thankfully settled down. Instead of being embroiled in warfare and rebellions, most people choose to visit an Afternoon Tea Hexham venue.
