Wooperton


Wooperton is a hamlet in Northumberland, located about 5 miles south of Wooler. Wooperton is located off the A697 road between Roseden and Powburn. There is a farm, Wooperton Hall, and a few residential buildings (including former estate workers' houses). There is also a large sawmill, located by the A697, about half a mile from the main settlement. In Medieval times Wooperton was the location of a more substantive village.[1]
