King Edwin's Palace, Old Yeavering (Kirknewton)
A map of 1584 showed a tower at Yeavering. It is thought likely that the Old Palace began as a modest domestic structure rather than as a defensible tower. It is a long rectangular building with very thick walls, which is now used as a farm outbuilding.
