Caption for Belford, The Cross And Main Road C1950
Belford is just one of many places in Northumberland that suffered during the cross-border raids that were a
feature of life in the North for several centuries. It is possible that the village was destroyed on more than one
occasion. In 1639, about thirty years after the Border raiders and reivers had been ruthlessly suppressed by James
II, Belford was still described as 'the most miserable, beggarly town, or town of sods, that ever was made...' The
people were living in hovels roofed with sod or heather.
