North Charlton


North Charlton is a hamlet in Northumberland located about 6 miles north of Alnwick and 7 miles south of Belford. Charlton Hall is located just over ½ a mile south-east of the hamlet. Charlton Burn flows eastwards through North Charlton. There are remains of an Iron Age defended settlement in Camp Plantation, on high ground by the burn, a short distance north-west of North Charlton.[1] In medieval times there was a substantial village and chapel here, with earthwork remains of the village and open field system around North Charlton Farm. A medieval cross can still be seen. There is a former water mill by Charlton Burn, and an earlier mill here was documented in 1295.[2] Historically, North Charlton was a township in the ancient parish of Ellingham. North Charlton later became a separate civil parish, until 1955 when it was merged, to become part of Eglingham Civil Parish. North Charlton Farm hosts Sylvia Armstrong's Household and Farming Museum.[3]
