Local History: Corsenside

  • Description

    "The parish of Corsenside lies in central Northumberland. It is mainly high open moorland, with the commons of Corsenside, East Woodburn and Chesterhope encircling the settlements of East and West Woodburn. Through the middle of the parish runs the River Rede, on its way southwards to join the North Tyne near Bellingham.

The name Corsenside is thought to derive from the Gaelic name 'Crossan.' The upland areas are rich in upstanding remains of all periods, from the Bronze Age to the 19th century....."
