Crookham is a village on the River Till in Northumberland, in England. It is situated approximately to the east of Coldstream and northwest of Wooler. It has three farms, Crookham Sandyford, Crookham Eastfield and Crookham Westfield. Recorded as "Crucum" in 1244, the village name derived from the Old English for "Settlement at the Bend" (of the River Till).

end of Wikipedia contribution

Possibly by error, references to Crookham have been omitted from the article on Ford in A Vision of Britain through Time, even though a search of supplementary places includes short excerpts from both John Marius Wilson's gazetter and that of John Bartholomew. In both, Crookham is described as a township of Ford.
