Bamborough (Bambrough, or Bambrugh), a village and parish in the county of Northumberland, on the coast, about 16 miles from Berwick. The old castle, alleged to have been founded in 548 by Ina, King of Northumbrin, is now a refuge for shipwrecked sailors. It was a royal borough before the Conquest, and formerly returned two members to Parliament. Off the coast lie the Farn Islands, with their lighthouse - the scene of the exploit of Grace Darling, who lies buried in the churchyard.
