Chatton is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is roughly 6 km (3.7 mi) to the east of Wooler.

History[edit]

A rock overhang at nearby Ketley Crag has examples of pre-historic rock art petroglyphs, including a profusion of cup and ring marks, which have been described as "stunning".[2]

It is the site of Hetton Hall, owned by descendants of the soldier Sir Thomas Grey whose expolits were recorded in the Scalacronica chronicle.

Economy[edit]

The village has amenities which include a pub (the Percy Arms) and village shop.
