Ponteland /pɒntˈiːlnd/ is a parish in Northumberland, situated 61 km (38 miles) south of the nearest Scottish Border crossing with Scotland and 15 km (9 miles) north of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The name means 'island in the Pont', named for the river that flows through the village. Ponteland's first settlement concentrated around solid ground within the marshland near St. Mary's church and the old bridge. Most of Ponteland's marshland is now drained to make way for housing. The River Pont flows from west-to-east and joins the River Blyth further downstream, before flowing into the North Sea. During the industrial era, Ponteland village enlarged to include residential developments in Darras Hall. It is home to many of the region's footballers and CEOs and is part of the North East's only safe Conservative parliamentary seat.Wikipedia
