Duddo is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, about 8 miles (13 km) southwest of Berwick-upon-Tweed.


History[edit]

Duddo Five Stones is a stone circle to the north of the village.[2] It is a Scheduled Monument.[3]

Duddo Tower, south of the village, was built late in the 16th century.[4] It is now a ruin and a Scheduled Monument.[5] It replaced an earlier tower built in 1496.[2]


Churches and school[edit]

The Church of England parish church of All Saints is a Gothic Revival building.[6] It is in a Decorated Gothic style and was completed in 1879.[6]

All Saints' church replaced the earlier parish church of St James the Great, which was designed by Ignatius Bonomi in a neo-Norman style and built in 1832.[2][7] It was later converted into part of the parish school,[2][7] presumably when All Saints' church was built. The school has since closed and the building is now a private house.[citation needed]
