Charlie's Corner, Wylam
A small area of open space flanked by Ovingham Road and Church Road. The front of Wylam Institute can be seen on the right. A two-storey white-washed building on this plot formerly served partly as the Institute and part as a cottage. It was demolished sometime around 1920. Flats on the left are named Blackett Court. The cottages in the distance are NZ1164 : Blackett Cottages off Church Road, Wylam.

Charlie's Corner was named for Mr Charles Atkinson of West House, round the corner on the Ovingham Road, who acquired and gave the land to the Parish Council around 1950. He was very prominent in village life and was a leading figure in the planning of the village war memorial, its construction and unveiling in 1923.
