CONSERVATION AREA APPRAISAL - Muggleswick, December 2011

  • Description

    "Muggleswick is an isolated settlement of a few scattered buildings on the north-east fringes of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Habitation here dates back at least to the 13th century, when the Priors of Durham had a Grange here. Muggleswick has no village street or village green and is a scattering of farmsteads. However, it has provided something of a focus for the local population as it does include the parish church in addition to the ancient Grange. The buildings are set out along the Muggleswick Burn, a tributary of the Derwent and are accessed via a single deadend lane. The setting on the edge of the North Pennines Moors is stunning with fine views to the east over adjacent lowlands....."
