Bamburgh (băm´bərə), village, Northumberland, NE England, on the North Sea. It was the capital of ancient Bernicia and for a time of Northumbria. In the 6th cent. a castle was erected above a tall cliff on the site of a Roman fort. Restored in the 18th cent., it is still used as a residence and contains the 14,000-volume Crewe Library. Bamburgh is the birthplace of Grace Darling.
