Raylees


Raylees is a hamlet in Northumberland located off the A696 road about 2½ miles south-east of Otterburn. There is also a minor road here, running 1½ miles north-east to the village of Elsdon. The hamlet is situated by Raylees Burn. There was a medieval fortified farmhouse here, thought to be moated,[1] reflecting the frequent border raids of those times. Raylees forms part of Elsdon Civil Parish.
