Acton is a small hamlet in Northumberland, north-east England, about 3 miles (5 km) south of Allendale Town. Acton is usually Anglo-Saxon Old English for "farmstead at the oak tree(s)"; here, though, it is "Acca's farmstead". Acca is an Anglo-Saxon settler's forename.


Acton is in the parliamentary constituency of Hexham.
