Newsham deserted medieval village

Newsham (the place name means 'the new dwelling') was a substantial village around the 12th century, but the settlement had been deserted by 1600. The few visible remains would be easy to miss, but there are lines of walls, house foundations and other earthworks - which are located to the along the north banks of the River Tees, to the south and east of Newsham Hall Farm. The remains of the deserted village are a Scheduled Monument.
