South Dissington


South Dissington is a farmstead situated by the Med Burn (stream), about half a mile west of the village of Medburn and 3 miles south-west of Ponteland. It is the site of a deserted medieval village.[1] Dissington Old Hall is located to the east. The area here, extending up to the River Pont, formed the township of South Dissington in the ancient parish of Newburn. The township of North Dissington was located on the other side of the River Pont. Today, South Dissington is part of the Civil Parish of Ponteland.
