W.) from Whittingham; containing, with the two townships of Fawdon with Clinch and Hartside, and Reaveley,The hamlet of Greenshaw-Hill lies a little to the east of Hartside, near the road between Wooler and Morpeth. there is every reason to infer that the parish was formerly much more populous than it is at present.
Ingram St Michael and All Angels is an extensive Ancient Parish The main church in Ingram is dedicated to St Michael. The earliest parts date to the 12th century. There was also probably a 12th century chapel at Brandon, though it was completely rebuilt before it fell into ruins. It was only the early font which suggested the 12th century date. The tower of St Michael’s church was strongly built and may have acted as a stronghold during the Scottish raids in the late medieval period, and would also have been a defence against the later Border Reivers. A small tower was also built near the church as a fortified home for the parish priest.
Other places in the parish include: Clinch, Fawdon, Fawdon, Clinch and Hartside, Hartside, Ingram, Linhope and Greenshawhill, Ingham, Linhop and Greenshawhill, and Reaveley.
