Bebside (Blyth)

This is the site of the Deserted Medieval Village of Bebside. In the medieval period it was partly owned by Tynemouth Priory. By the 19th century all that survived of the village was a farm and a few cottages. Today all that can be seen are two farms; no traces of the earlier village survive.
