Trewick (Belsay)

  • Description

    "A settlement was first recorded at Trewick in the 13th century but it seems to have remains a small hamlet. Records show that the greatest number of inhabitants lived here in the early 14th century, when four people were recorded in the 1312 Lay Subsidy. In the late 16th century there were nine tenements and by the 17th century it was part of the Middleton family estate.

The fields around the Trewick contain medieval ridge and furrow...."
