Bastle House, Cambo

A 16th century bassle house in Cambo, Northumberland. In 1818 it was converted into shop and still has a lintel above the former shop window inscribed "J.T. 1818" (John Trevelyan). At one time it was also the village Post Office. Now it is a private residence. The house is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England. The basstle is notable for being built with 3 floors, rather 2, which was the norm.
