Location

Williamoteswick
Northumberland
England

Williamoteswick (or Willmontswick) is a fortified manorhouse situated on the south side of the South Tyne near Bardon Mill and is clearly visible as you travel east. The Willmontswick family occupied the Manor in the 12th century until it passed to the Ridley family in 1279. It is generally accepted as having been the birthplace of Bishop Ridley, who was burned at the stake in October 1555 for his teachings and support of Lady Jane Grey. Williamoteswick is now a family farm.
