Low Middleton, Northumberland


Low Middleton is a hamlet in Northumberland, located just over a mile north of Belford. It lies to the east of the A1 road and the East Coast Mainline railway, about ½ mile north-east of Middleton. The present Low Middleton Farm dates from the mid 19th century, but there is evidence of medieval ridge and furrow cultivation here. Low Middleton forms part of Belford with Middleton Civil Parish.
