TWIZELL, a township, in the parish of Norham, union of Berwick-upon-Tweed, N. division of Northumberland, 10 miles (S.W.) from Berwick; containing 336 inhabitants. It is situated on the river Till, which is here crossed by a stone bridge of one arch, 91 feet in the span. Twizell Castle, a fine though unfinished castellated mansion of the Blakes, is seated on a rocky precipice, surrounded by extremely picturesque scenery; and near it is Tillmouth House, the present residence of the family. The vicarial tithes have been commuted for £63. 18. 3.; and the appropriate for £400. 9. 4., payable to the Dean and Chapter of Durham. In the neighbourhood are the remains of an ancient chapel dedicated to St. Cuthbert.
