Roseden


Roseden is a hamlet in Northumberland, located about 5 miles south east of Wooler. It consists of a farm and a few cottages. A tree near the farm carries a plaque commemorating a Hurricane fighter pilot who died when his plane crashed here on the 14th of January 1944.[1] Rosden forms part of the Civil Parish of Roddam; historically it had been township in the ancient parish of Iderton.

ROSEDEN, a township, in the parish of Ilderton, union of Glendale, N. division of Coquetdale ward and of Northumberland, 5 miles (S.E. by S.) from Wooler, on the road to Newcastle; containing 83 inhabitants. The township comprises about 1,850 acres, of which 1,000 are moorland, 800 arable, and 50 pasture and wood; it is of a light turnip soil, with a portion of clay, and there is a small freestone-quarry. The river Breamish passes on the east. On Roseden Edge are the remains of a semicircular intrenchment of earth, with an inner wall of loose stones, supposed to be of British origin.
