|OS grid reference||NT908178|
The River Till in Northumberland is the only tributary of the River Tweed which flows wholly in England. (A section of the Whiteadder Water, which is otherwise Scottish, also flows through England). The upper part of the Till, which rises on Comb Fell, is known as the River Breamish.
Its tributaries include Wooler Water, which originates in the Cheviot Hills, and the River Glen in Glendale. It meets the Tweed near Berwick-upon-Tweed and the Twizel Viaduct. According to local folklore:
- Tweed said to Till
- "What gars ye rin sae stil?"
- Says Till to Tweed,
- "Though ye rin wi' speed
- And I rin slaw
- Whar ye droon yin man
- I droon twa"
