Corsenside is a village in Northumberland, England alongside the A68 road about 17 miles (27 km) north of Corbridge. "Corsenside" derives from the Gaelic Irish personal name Crossan.


Governance[edit]

Corsenside is in the parliamentary constituency of Hexham.


Religious sites[edit]

The tiny church of St. Cuthbert at Corsenside, between the road and the river, contains a Norman chancel arch. The age and dedication of the church makes it probable that this was one of the spots where the body of St. Cuthbert rested during the flight of the monks from Holy Island, 875-882 AD. They probably came here from Elsdon; and continued by way of Bellingham, Haydon Bridge, Beltingham, etc. The neighbouring house with small mullioned windows is a 17th-century building.[2]
