Village Green, Walbottle
Village Green, Walbottle
The village of Walbottle is known to have existed since at least the C13th, and perhaps earlier.

The medieval village was built round the green, and was surrounded by strip-cultivated open fields LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

In the 19th century Walbottle green had a pond, stone pant and a horse trough.

George Stephenson is reputed to have been taught to read and write at night classes at the former Primitive Methodist Chapel on the west side of the green (demolished in 1961), by local schoolmaster, Robin Cowens.
