East Heddon


East Heddon is a hamlet in Northumberland, located about 1 mile north of the village of Heddon-on-the-Wall. It consists of a farm and a few cottages. The farm is on the site of the deserted medieval village of East Heddon - In 1296 six taxpayers were recorded as living here, indicating a sizable village. However, by the early 19th century only three farms and a few cottages remained.[1] Historically, East Heddon was a township in the ancient parish of Heddon-on-the Wall. Today, the settlement forms part of the Civil Parish of Heddon-on-the-Wall. There are a number of farms near East Heddon, including Heddon Laws, Mount Hope, and Rose Cottage Farm.
