Blyth Town Council


"The present day area of Blyth Town consists of the ancient townships of Cowpen and South Blyth/Newsham. The boundaries of the townships had been established before written records began and were administrative divisions of a parish. Cowpen Township was a division of Horton Parish and South Blyth/Newsham a division of Earsdon parish. The dividing line between the two townships was roughly what we now know as Plessey Road and Union Street, with South Blyth/Newsham being to the south and east of these markers. Industrial activity from Blyth slowly encroached on to the lands and small village of Cowpen Township during the early 19th century and eventually Cowpen became synonymous with Blyth." (Blyth Town Council)
