Dilston


Dilston is a small settlement located by the Devil's Water, just over a mile south-west of Corbridge in Northumberland. Dilston is the site of a deserted medieval village.[1] The wider area once formed a manor and later the township of Dilston, in the ancient parish of Corbridge. Dilston Castle here dates from the 13th century. Dilston Chapel was built in the 17th century and served Dilston Hall (the former manor house, later replaced by a new building). Today, Dilston forms part of Corbridge Civil Parish.
