During medieval times Bilton was larger; it is recorded as having 8 taxpayers in 1296 and had becoma a more substantial village by the 18th century. However, the village shrank in the 19th century, when several farms were amalgamated.[1] Bilton was primarily an agricultural village; 17th century field systems are shown on a map of 1624. Coal mining is also recorded on Bilton Common in the 17th century.[2] Bilton is part of the civil parish of Lesbury, and is close to Hipsburn, and the location of Alnmouth railway station.
