STANNERS: What does the term mean?

I used to live in Morpeth until I was 16 and moved to Australia, and had short stays in Morpeth for 15 years.

I was talking to my mother today about the High and Low Stanners. For the first time in my life I asked myself what are Stanners?

I wonder how many of your readers actually know what they are.
