Tyneside-born Cuthbert Collingwood became the hero of the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) after taking control when his friend Nelson was fatally wounded.

For the sake of the nation, he was persuaded to remain as Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Navy, but he was always eager to return to his Morpeth home in Oldgate.
