Bywell is a village in Northumberland, in England. It is situated on the north bank of the River Tyne opposite Stocksfield, between Hexham and Newcastle. In 2011 the population of the parish was 451 according to the UK census.

Bywell was formed as a civil parish in 1887 on the merger of the former parishes of Bywell St. Andrew and Bywell St. Peter. Wikipedia has descriptions of both the churches.

Bywell was expanded in area in 1955 when the parishes of Bearl, Newton, Newton Hall, Stelling and Styford, were abolished. These parishes were all originally townships of either Bywell St. Andrew or Bywell St. Peter.
