Cambo is a village in Northumberland, England. It is about 11 miles (18 km) to the west of the county town of Morpeth at the junction of the B6342 and B6343 roads. It is part of Wallington Estate, and is a National Trust village.


Landmarks[edit]

Wallington, the 17th-century hall, is just south of the village, and has been owned by the National Trust since 1942.

In Cambo itself, Holy Trinity church dates from 1842, with a west tower added in 1884. The village post office is housed in a three-storey 16th-century bastle house.[1]

Notable people[edit]

Capability Brown, the 18th-century landscape gardener, was educated at the village school. He was born at nearby Kirkharle.
