Lowick


Lowick, Northumberland

Lowick is a village in Northumberland, England. It appears in records as early as 1181 as Lowich, and in 1242 as Lowyc. The name derives from Old English meaning settlement (OE: wic, cognate to Latin vicus) on the River Low.

Landmarks

The Devil's Causeway passes through the village having continued north under a C Road for about from Newtown. The causeway is a Roman road which starts at Port Gate on Hadrian's Wall, north of Corbridge, and extends northwards across Northumberland to the mouth of the River Tweed at Berwick-upon-Tweed.

The rural village of Lowick can be found in the northern part of Northumberland, approximately 9 miles south of Berwick-upon-Tweed and 7 miles northeast of Wooler. The ancient road used by the monks of Lindisfarne to Durham crosses the Roman Road called the Devil's Causeway here - it was at these crossroads that Lowick began to develop.

The village lies at 100m above sea level. There are two public house, the Black Bull and the White Swan, and a village shop. A mobile post office visits each weekday morning.

A mile to the east of the village are the earthwork remains of Lowick Castle.
