Hartington shrunken village (Rothley with Hollinghill)

To the south Tut Hill and Delf Burn farms are earthworks that show that Hartington was once of greater extent. These earthworks take the form of irregular platforms and garths. In places they have been ploughed over with broad ridge and furrow cultivation. Medieval documents refer to both "East" and "West Hertwayton" suggesting that the original settlement was split into two parts during the middle ages.
