Clennell deserted medieval village (Netherton with Biddlestone)

  • Description

    "In the medieval period Clennell was one of the 'Ten Towns of Coquetdale'. It is first mentioned in documentary sources in 1242 and is recorded in various tax rolls through the 13th to 17th centuries. It is thought that the village was cleared away to make way for the park and gardens surrounding Clennell Hall. The only medieval earthworks to survive from this period are the ridges and furrows of the village's field system...."
