Collingwood House – HODs
September 15 @ 12:00 PM - September 16 @ 4:00 PMFree
Georgian house of historical importance as the home of Admiral Lord Collingwood and now the Presbystery of St. Robert of Newminster’s church which is nearby and is also open.
Admiral Lord Collingwood was Nelson’s second-in-command at the Battle of Trafalgar.
Lord Collingwood spent long periods of time away at sea but this Georgian house in Morpeth was where his family lived. Although his visits home were rare, he wrote fondly of his time spent here in Morpeth.
This house is now the Presbytery of St Robert’s R.C. Church which will be open at the same time.
Open both Friday & Saturday 12noon – 4pm
No booking required
Some steps, primarily at the entrance to Collingwood House. Free parking nearby although some car parks are time restricted.
As this house is a working Presbytery, access is limited to the dining room, hall and beautiful staircase. Contact for the day: Father Stott 01670 513410
