The hamlet of New Mousen and Mousen Hall are located by the A1 road about 1½ miles south-east of Belford. Old Mousen is ¾ mile to the south-west and was once the location of a medieval village. To the north of New Mousen, Mousen Bridge carries the A1 road over Mousen Burn. Mousen Barns is to the east. Historically, Mosen was a township in the ancient parish of Bambrough.
