Greencroft (County Durham)

  • Description

    "The small parish of Greencroft lies just to the north of the village of Lanchester, of which it was once part. There are few early remains here, and it is only in the medieval period that Greencroft first comes to notice, although the important Roman road Dere Street runs just to the west of the area. Greencroft Park] was probably the site of a deserted medieval village, although no remains can be seen here now. Greencroft Hall was probably the site of the original manor house....."
