Callaly is a village in Northumberland, England. It is about 9 miles (14 km) to the west of Alnwick. The main A697 road (to Morpeth) is 3 miles (5 km) away. It is on the line of the Roman road linking the Roman forts of High Rochester to the west and Learchild to the east, where it joins the Devil's Causeway Roman road to the north.


Governance[edit]

Callaly is in the parliamentary constituency of Berwick-upon-Tweed.


Landmarks[edit]

Callaly Castle, a Grade 1 listed building, is located just north of the village.

Dancing Hall is located outside of Callaly Village and is a site where traditionally convicts from the local region were held before being transported to the local magistrates at Powburn. Dancing Hall derives its name from the fact that the majority of convicts were on their way to be hanged for various crimes, that is, to "dance on the hangman's rope".
