Civil Parishes in Northumberland


Civil parishes are the lowest tier of local government in England. Most of Northumberland is parished, though some urban areas are unparished, or may come under a Town Council. Boundaries of civil parishes often change over time, however many of the parishes in Northumberland relate back to the 'ancient parishes'. There are also links to historic buildings () in the respective parishes. Parishes vary in size (the population numbers below are from 2011). The information below on settlements within parishes is a 'work in progress'. Hint: use the 'Search' below to find places.
