Hepburn, Northumberland


Hepburn is a hamlet in Northumberland, historically within the parish of Chillingham, now Tillside . It had been a larger medieval village, but this was largely deserted by the 18th century.[1] Nearby are Hepburn Bastle and the remains of an Iron Age hilltop fort on Hepburn Craggs.

Hebburn Wood is a maze of birches, ferns, and rock; Hebburn Crags are crowned with an ancient camp; and Hebburn Tower, within a gate of Chillingham Park, is a good old peel, with a fine pointed window. Limestone is quarried." Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales, 1870-72, John Marius Wilson.
