Lord Crewe Arms (Blanchland)
Although now a pub, this was once the guest house of Blanchland Abbey. It stands on the site of the west side of the cloister. It was probably built in the 13th century, though most of the upper floors were probably built after the mid 16th century. The tower at the north of the building was heightened in the 15th century using earlier stone rubble. This is a Grade II* listed building protected by law.
