NETHER DENTON, Cumberland

"NETHER DENTON lies on the south side of the Irthing, between Naworth and Upper Denton and the parish has no dependent townships. As was usual with primitive nations, its name is descriptive, and not a mere fanciful appellation, such as we, in modern times, bestow; it was one of the tons or towns of our Saxon forefathers, who named it, from its position, Dene-ton, that is, the town in the dene or valley."

[Description from T. Bulmer & Co's History, Topography and Directory of East Cumberland, 1884]
