Barmoor (Lowick)

This is the site of the deserted medieval village of Barmoor. It was first recorded in 1377. It began to decrease in size in the 17th century. In the mid-18th century, there were still two rows of houses, but by the late 18th century, there was only one row. The earthwork remains of several of these early buildings can still be seen. An area of ridge and furrow can be seen to the south.
