Warden  Northumberland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Warden like this:

WARDEN, a parish in Hexham district, Northumberland; at the confluence of the rivers North Tyne and South Tyne, and near Fourstones r. station, 3¼ miles WNW of Hexham. Post town, Hexham. Acres, 3,122. Real property, £4,679; of which £103 are in mines. Pop., 716. Houses, 127. ...

The property is subdivided. Lime and coal are worked; and there is a paper-mill. A circular camp is at High W.; and a petrifying well is near the North Tyne. The living is a vicarage, united with Newbrough and Haydon-Bridge, in the diocese of Durham. The church is partly early English, partly of 1763 and 1805.
