Black Heddon is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated to the north-west of Newcastle, between Stamfordham and Belsay.

According to local legend, the village was once haunted by a ghost named Silky, who used to jump onto travellers' horses. In nearby Belsay is a tree overlooking a waterfall which is known as Silky's Chair.[1]
