ADMIRAL LORD COLLINGWOOD
Morpeth - the family home
Collingwood's family home was located on Morpeths oldest street, Oldgate. He described the "beautiful views which are nowhere to be exceeded". He loved the beauties of his garden which he claimed were the work of his own hands, "I planned everything and planted almost every tree, every honeysuckle and every rose bush". Collingwood's home is now a priests' residence.
