Blyth is a village in the Bassetlaw District of the county of Nottinghamshire, northwest of East Retford, on the River Ryton.

GENUKI states that the ancient parish of Blyth also covered the very southeastern corner of Yorkshire and included the chapelries of Austerfield and Bawtry. Other townships within the Nottinghamshire part of the parish include Barnby Moor with Bilby, Hodsock with Goldthorpe, Ranskill, part of Styrrup with Oldcoates, and Torworth. Blyth was in the Strafforth and Tickhill Wapentake of the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Wikipedia tells some of the history of the two estates of Blyth Priory and Blyth Hall.
