Local history: Broomhaugh and Riding (Northumberland)

  • Description

    "Broomhaugh and Riding parish is located in southern Northumberland on the south bank of the River Tyne just south-east of Corbridge. The northern part of the parish is bounded by the River Tyne and the southern part rises towards Broomley Fell. The valley of the March Burn cuts across the north-western side of the parish on its route to the Tyne and separates the main settlements of Broomhaugh and Riding Mill. The name Broomhaugh derives from the broom that grew there; Riding probably derives from the Latin term for a clearing, Riding Mill being the mill by the clearing...."
