Admiral Lord Collingwood was Nelson’s second-in-command at the Battle of Trafalgar and spent long periods of time away at sea but this Georgian house in Morpeth was where his family lived. Although his visits home were rare, he wrote fondly of his time spent here in Morpeth. This house is now the Presbytery of St Robert’s R.C. Church which will be open at the same time. No booking required.
