NOTE: Anick should not be confused with Alnwick, pronounced the same, but a town, also in Northumberland, and some 35 miles (56 km) further north on the North Sea coast.

Anick is a village in Northumberland, England, situated to the north of Hexham.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Anick from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"ANICK and ANICK-GRANGE, two townships in St. John Lee parish, Northumberland; near the Tyne, 1½ mile NE of Hexham. Acres: 451 and 2,220. Population: 137 and 48. Houses: 27 and 8."

Anick and Anick Grange (redirected here) were originally individual townships in the ancient parish of Lee St. John. They both became civil parishes in 1866 and lost that status in 1887 when they were absorbed into the parish of Sandhoe.
