Deserted Village of Ewart (Ewart)

Although nothing can be seen today, this was the site of the village of Ewart. It was once a thriving community, and as late as the 18th century it had nineteen cottages, a smithy, stables, barns, byres, a granary, as well as the Hall and its outbuildings. A map of 1757 shows a two-row village with a green. It only disappeared in the late 18th century, when the landowner demolished it to make way for a new hall. Much of the former site of the village was planted with trees.
