Hazon is a small village in Northumberland, located about 5 miles south of Alnwick, half a mile north-west of Guyzance and 2 miles north-east of Swarland. Hazon is the site of a deserted medieval village first recorded in 1242.[1] Amongst the buildings in todays village is Hazon House, dating from 1684.
