Local History: Marwood

  • Description

    "Although marked by the Ordnance Survey as a deserted medieval village, the remains visible at Marwood are more likely to represent a native Romano-British settlement of a type found elsewhere in the north such as at Crosby Garret Fell in the Eden Valley, Cumbria....Marwood may have been re-used in the medieval period as an iron-working site, with many small slag heaps still visible. The confusion of the site with that of the known Anglo-Saxon village of the same name may have arisen from the fact that the original parish of Marwood was much larger and included the area now occupied by Barnard Castle...."
