The adjacent hamlets of East Moneylaws and West Moneylaws in Northumberland are located close to the border with Scotland, about 8½ miles north-west of Wooler and 2 miles south of Cornhill-on-Tweed. The remains of an Iron Age settlement are located on the nearby Moneylaws Hill. There was a Medieval village at Moneylaws, but this declined in size in the 16th and 17th century. In the 19th century, Moneylaws was a township in the ancient parish of Carham. Today, Moneylaws forms part of the Civil Parish of Carham.
