Longframlington is a small village in Northumberland, England, located on the A697, 11 miles (18 km) north-west of Morpeth and 5 miles (8 km) south-east of Rothbury. Longframlington is a former pit village and on the site of the pit now stands Fram Park, a log cabin holiday park. The village also plays host to the Longframlington Music Festival, which encourages musicians of any age, ability and performing any genre to broadcast their talents with the community. In 2013 it will take place in the Community Rooms and St. Mary's Church on 8-11th May.
A branch of the Roman road, Dere Street, known as the Devil's Causeway, passes close by Longframlington, and the mounds visible on the Hall Hill in the angle of the Pauperhaugh and Weldon Bridge roads may be those of a Roman camp.
The church of St Mary the Virgin dates from the late 12th century and until 1891 was a chapel of ease to Felton; since that date Longframlington has been an independent parish. The church was carefully restored in the late 19th century retaining its fine Norman chancel arch.
The church is identified as being dedicated to St. Laurence on maps of Longframlington shown on website Communities.Northumberland.gov.uk (Longframlington - Ordnance maps) dated 1897 and 1920.
