History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The other building is the 18th-century manor of Bywell Hall, built around 1760 by William Fenwick, son of the High Sheriff of Northumberland. The Hall is in private hands and but is open to the public for guided tours.
A medieval market cross stands beside the road.
There are two historical churches in Bywell, and both are worth a visit. St Andrews church is an ancient Saxon building, with one of the best Saxon towers in England. While St Andrews is now redundant, nearby St Peters is not; it is a fine Saxon building with Norman and 13th-century rebuilding.
