Glendale, Northumberland


Glendale is the name of the valley formed by the River Glen in Northumberland. However, the name Glendale is generally applied to the wider area around the town of Wooler, covering an area of 250 square miles stretching from the river Tweed in the North to the village of Ingram in the south.[1] It is primarily a rural area, with a population of around 6,000 people. Glendale was also an inspiration for the fictional area of "Greendale" in the Postman Pat stories by John Cunliffe. The author once worked in the area as a mobile library driver. Some of the place names in Postman Pat can be linked to names of places in Glendale, and also Longsleddale in Cumbria, where he also lived.
