Local History: Slaley (Northumberland)

  • Description

    "Slaley is a relatively small parish in south Northumberland. Many tributaries of the Tyne flow across the parish and large forestry plantations are planted in the upland parts....In the medieval period several settlements grew up in the parish, including Sessinghope, Wooley, Dukesfield and possibly Merchingley as well. Rare remains of a medieval house are incorporated into the farm buildings at Shield Hall, apparently of 13th or 14th century date....."
