Blindburn


Blindburn is a hamlet / farmstead in Northumberland, located about 15 miles north-west of Rothbury and close to the border with Scotland. The settlement is named after the Blind Burn (stream) which joins the River Coquet here. There was an illegal whisky still at Blindburn, operating in the 18th and 19th centuries.[1]
