A wide area view of the Ogle area north west of Newcastle today.   A 1610 map shows a river that can be followed westward from Blithes (Blyth) past Ogle and Belsay castle.  The river forks south half way to Ogle - take the north fork. The river flows like a "U" to the north of Ogle castle, placing the castle in a more defendable location.
