Crawleyside


Crawleyside is a hillside village in Weardale, less than half a mile to the north of Stanhope in County Durham. Much of the village is located along the B6278 road on the steep incline of Crawleyside Banks leading up to Crawley Top. Historically there was extensive limestone quarrying in the area, including Ashes Quarry which closed in the 1940's, but is still a distinctive feature of the landscape. To the west of Crawleyside there are the Bronze Age Crawley Edge Cairns.
