Ruins of Muggleswick Grange

  • Description

    "This spectacular ruin is part of Muggleswick Grange, built during the 13th century for the Prior of Durham. A grange was a farm owned and run by the monastic community to provide food and materials for the parent monastic house and to sell surpluses for profit. Muggleswick is of national importance because standing remains of monastic granges from this time are very unusual."
