Coxhoe Medieval Settlement

The buried remains of the Medieval village of Coxhoe are located to the south-west of East House Farm, roughly half way between the modern villages of Coxhoe and Kelloe. There are visible remains of Medieval ridge and furrow cultivation here. The old manor house was replaced by Coxhoe Hall in the 18th century. The buried remains of the settlement are a Scheduled Monument. The area of the settlement straddles the civil parishes of Coxhoe and Kelloe.

"The plan of the medieval settlement of Coxhoe is of a type familiar to this part of County Durham in which parallel lines of tofts or houses with crofts or garden areas to the rear face on to a village green. Beyond the tofts and crofts would lie the communal open fields where the crops were grown. The tofts and crofts at Coxhoe survive as visible earthworks up to 0.5m high, forming rectangular and subrectangular enclosures of between 6m and 10m wide arranged around a narrow green...The village of Coxhoe first appears in land grants of the 14th century. By the end of the 14th century the village was in the hands of the Blakiston family. In 1418, the manor house and mill were described as ruinous." (Historic England)
