March Burn / Ridingmill Burn

March Burn / Ridingmill Burn is a river in Northumberland, which is a tributary of the River Tyne. Reaston Burn and Healey Burn join to form March Burn near Healey. March Burn flows in a roughly northerly direction to White Hemmels. Then, joined by Dipton Burn, it flows in a roughly north-easterly direction, sometimes known as Ridingmill Burn, it joins the River Tyne at Riding Mill. The water body is 11.5km long (including Healey Burn, March Burn and Ridingmill Burn), with a catchment area of 38.7 km2.[1]  The ancient hamlets of Broomhaugh and Riding, which grew to form Riding Mill, were historically separated by March Burn.
