Rothley with Hollinghill (Northumberland) - Local History

  • Description

    "Rothley is a small parish in mid-Northumberland. Large parts are rough upland grassland and heather moor together with part of the forestry plantations of Harwood Forest. Much of the upland parts have been improved for arable and livestock farming and the rocky outcrops have been quarried for limestone. The oldest settlements in the parish are Iron Age or Roman. The Stell sits on crags but lower lying settlements are known in the west of the parish at Birky Burn and Ottercops Moss where traces of early farming have been recorded, known as cord rig. In medieval times there were settlements at Hartington and Rothley....."
