Fallodon is a hamlet situated in Northumberland, England. It is the territorial designation of Viscount Grey of Fallodon. It is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Fallodon from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "FALLOWDEN, a township in Embleton parish, Northumberland; 6½ miles NNE of Alnwick. Acres: 1,024. Population: 104. Houses: 19. Fallowden House belonged formerly to the Woods, and belongs now to Sir George Grey, Bart. An ilex-tree [holly] here has a girth of 11 feet in the stem."
As stated above, Fallodon was part of the ancient parish of Embleton. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and it was absorbed into the nearby parish of Newton by the Sea.
