Birling is a small settlement in Northumberland, in England. It is situated immediately to the north of the village of Warkworth.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Birling from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "BIRLING, or Berling, a township in Warkworth parish, Northumberland; on the river Coquet and on the coast, 6½ miles SE of Alnwick. Acres: 826. Population: 83. Houses: 14."
Birling was a township in the ancient parish of Warkworth. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Alnwick Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed back into the parish of Warkworth.
