Haltwistle as it was

This is an extract from a National Gazetteer dated 1862, found it (and loads of other stuff) at Click on the image for a more readable version. Strange fact, all of the northern related stuff is held and been digitised by the University of Toronto of all places. Anyway it's a gold mine for local history stuff, I'll be going back!
