Mickleton is a village in Teesdale, in the Pennines. It is located by the River Lune near where it leaves Lunedale and joins the River Tees. There is a Bronze Age burial site at Kirkcarrion in the nearby Lunedale Hills. Historically, Mickleton was a township in the ancient parish of Romaldkirk in the North Riding of Yorkshire.
