Riding Mill is situated on the south side of the Tyne, three miles east of Corbridge. Originally centred around its mill and manor house, the village grew in the 19th Century wth the arrival of the railway.
Of note is the Wellington Hotel in the village centre, which is famous for its connection with a famous trial for witchcraft in 1673. Today, the Wellington is featured in our Whistle Stops guide to Real Ale Pubs along the Tyne Valley Railway.
The Parish Council have produced a History Trail walk leaflet, to help you explore the history of the village and surrounding area.
Just outside the village is a large pumping station, built to transport water from Kielder reservoir over the hills to the south and through a tunnel to the River Wear and then on to the Tees, a massive engineering work which has ensured the region has stayed free of water rationing in even the driest of spells
Next to the station, you can enjoy some wonderful refreshments at the Deli at the Station. Open 7 days a week.
