Milbourne


Milbourne is a village in Northumberland, located about 3 miles north-west of Ponteland and situated by Mill Burn (known as Coldcoats Burn downstream, and a tributary of the River Pont). Historically, Milburn and Milburn Grange (note the old spellings) were townships in the ancient Parish of Ponteland. Milbourne Hall, built in 1809, is located just over half a mile south-west of the village. Holy Saviour Church in Milbourne was built in 1868 as a chapel of ease to St Mary's in Ponteland in the eclisiastical parish. Milbourne became a civil parish from 1866 up to 1955, and has since formed part of the Civil Parish of Ponteland.
