Halton

HALTON, a chapelry, in the parish of Corbridge, union of Hexham, E. division of Tindale ward, S. division of Northumberland, 5 miles (N. E. by E.) from Hexham; containing 46 inhabitants. The chapel was rebuilt in 1706, principally by the subscriptions of John Douglas, Esq., and the freeholders of Whittingham. Near it is Halton Tower, an ancient edifice with four turrets, on the north side of which the remains of a much larger building may be traced.
