North Charlton is a hamlet in Northumberland, in England. It is situated on the A1 road between Alnwick and Berwick upon Tweed.

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

"CHARLTON (North), a township in Ellingham parish, Northumberland; 6½ miles N by W of Alnwick. Acres: 2,731. Population: 184. Houses: 43."

Historically it was a township in the ancient parish of Ellingham. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Alnwick Rural District. In 1955 it was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Eglingham. North Charlton was a very large parish of 2,807 acres in 1955. (Source: A Vision of Britain through Time)
