Wall is a village in Northumberland, England situated to the north of Hexham close by the River North Tyne and Hadrian's Wall. The Battle of Heavenfield was fought nearby.
Wall was served by Wall railway station on the Border Counties Railway which linked the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway, near Hexham, with the Border Union Railway at Riccarton Junction. The first section of the route was opened between Hexham and Chollerford in 1858, the remainder opening in 1862. The line was closed to passengers by British Railways in 1956.
Wall was originally a township in the ancient parish of Lee St. John. It became a separate civil parish in 1866, and in 1955 its area was greatly increased when it absorbed the neighbouring civil parishes of Fallowfield and Cocklaw.
