Shilvington


Shilvington is a hamlet in Northumberland, located by Shilvington Burn. This was the site of a larger village in medieval times; the remains of which are a Scheduled Monument.[1]

SHILVINGTON, a township, in the parish of Morpeth, union and W. division of Castle ward, S. division of Northumberland, 5 miles (S. W. by S.) from Morpeth; containing 92 inhabitants. It was anciently a manor in the Merlay barony, and was the property of the knightly families of Gubium and Ogle, the connexion of the latter of whom with the place was revived in 1830, the Rev. J. Savile Ogle then purchasing the estate. The township is in the southern part of the parish, and comprises 1426 acres, of a good soil. The village is small, and pleasantly situated on the road from Saltwick to Whalton; here was a mill in the time of Henry III., and it is pretty certain that the village also had a chapel, though no remains of it exist.
