Cornhill-on-Tweed is a small village and civil parish in Northumberland, England about 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east of Coldstream, Scotland. The hamlets of West Learmouth and East Learmouth are located to the south and west of the village respectively.

History[edit]

Cornhill Castle mound

A mile north-west of the village, on a spur above the River Tweed are the earthwork remains of Cornhill Castle.

Transport[edit]

Cornhill-on-Tweed lies at a junction of the A697 and A698 roads - the latter linking to Berwick-upon-Tweed, the nearest significant town, some 13 miles (21 km) away.

Education[edit]

The village lacks any schools, so pupils are sent to schools nearby. It formerly had a school known as Cornhill School, which was built in 1837 and closed in 2012.[2]
