Snitter is a village and civil parish in Northumberland, England. It is near the Northumberland National Park. The closest town is Rothbury.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Snitter from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "SNITTER, a township in Rothbury parish, Northumberland; 2½ miles WNW of Rothbury. Acres: 1,083. Population: 134. Houses: 32. "
Snitter was a township in the ancient parish of Rothbury and became a separate civil parish in 1866. In 1955 the civil parish absorbed the surrounding parishes of Flotterton and Warton.
