Ponteland

Ponteland /pɒntˈiːlənd/ is a town situated in Northumberland near Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The name means island in the Pont (the river which flows through the village), as the area consisted of a small piece of solid ground around St. Mary's church and the old bridge, surrounded by marshland. This marshland is now drained, with housing built on top of it. The Pont river joins the Blyth river further downstream. The old village has been greatly enlarged by the development of the residential area of Darras Hall.
