Old Nafferton (Horsley)

This was the site of a bastle. However, most of the buildings at Old Nafferton were demolished in 1843, when it became part of the Bywell Estates. One of the few remaining buildings is a rectangular cow house. This has very thick walls, and it has been suggested that this may be the remains of the bastle.
