Newtown, Northumberland (near Rothbury)
NEWTOWN, a township, in the parish and union of Rothbury, W. division of Coquetdale ward, N. division of Northumberland, 1½ mile (W.S.W.) from Rothbury; containing 57 inhabitants. It is situated on the northern declivity of a ridge of rocks; the streams of the Cowett wells unite here, and, dashing down the steep and passing Tosson mill, are lost in the Coquet, which flows on the north, a short distance from the hamlet. The land is good turnip soil. On the east of the township is the Carterside estate, partly the property of the Duke of Northumberland.
