Possible medieval buildings (Brinkburn and Hesleyhurst)

A series of building foundations were noted on the north bank of the River Coquet near Brinkburn in the 19th century. They were thought to be associated with a medieval road and connected with the Priory. The river bank is very steep and was overgrown when the area was inspected in the 1950s when no trace of the foundations could be found.
