Disused railway halt at Fontburn, Northumberland
Although there was no village for miles the Northumberland Central Railway built a station at Fontburn 6 miles south of Rothbury. It was mainly used by workers at the nearby Whitehouse Colliery and lime kilns. From 1890 it would also have been used by men working on the new Fontburn Reservoir. In 1921 it was reduced in status to a halt. It is now a private residence.
