Low Buston (Warkworth)

  • Description

    "This is the site of the deserted medieval village of Low Buston. It was first recorded in 1242, but fell into disuse during the 18th century. The remains of the village can still be seen. Several sunken roadways are visible running through the site. There are also a series of rectangular enclosures, possibly small fields, as well as smaller enclosures which were probably the site of buildings. Aerial photographs of the area also show traces of ridge and furrow. This is a Scheduled Monument..."
