Cold Hesledon Deserted Medieval Village

  • Description

    "Not much to see. Just a field with lots of humps and bumps. Unusually the field is enclosed by a cast iron fence which must be due to its historical significance. For more details see which indicates a medieval desertion. This was a period of general population contraction throughout the country due to successive crop failures, plagues and in this are of the north east incursions by Scottish raiders."
