Pronunciation? Dunstanberg? Or like Edinburgh? Ro Thorpe 13:32, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

I think it's like Edinburgh, though it's years since I visited Dunstanburgh and may be misremembering. Richard Nevell 20:54, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! Ro Thorpe 22:32, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

I'd guess the same, as Bamburgh Castle, which is also on the Northumberland coast, is pronounced that way. Peter Jackson 08:39, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
The pronunciation of Bamburgh was in the back of my mind as the theory that Dunstanburgh was named to imitate Bamburgh - regardless of whether it's true or not - would only make sense if the two names sounded similar. Richard Nevell 17:44, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
