Ogle, Northumberland

Historical Description

Ogle, a township in Whalton parish, Northumberland, 6½ miles SW of Morpeth station on the N.E.R. Acreage, 2185; population, 87. Ogle Castle was long the seat of the ancient family of Ogle; was built or restored and strengthened in 1340 by Robert de Ogle; was a long quadrangular pile, with towers at the four corners and surrounded by a double moat crossed by a drawbridge; and was the place to which Copeland took the captive King David of Scotland after the battle of Neville's Cross. It is now represented chiefly by fragments incorporated with a picturesque manor house of the time of Charles I. and by remains of the moat.
