Whittle Township, Ovingham, 1848


WHITTLE, a township, in the parish of Ovingham, union of Hexham, E. division of Tindale ward, S. division of Northumberland, 11 miles (W.) from Newcastle; containing 31 inhabitants. It is the property of Greenwich Hospital, and is situated above a mile north-by-west from Ovingham, upon a stream the water of which, being peculiarly soft and clear, is excellent for whitening linen-cloth. This stream, which in parts runs between woody banks, joins the Tyne east of Ovington; the scenery near it is romantic, and the glen along which it flows is celebrated for the number of its wild flowers. In the vicinity of Whittle is a strong sulphureous spring.
