Denwick shrunken village (Denwick)
The earliest documentary reference to Denwick is in 1289. A series of medieval documents from the 13th, 15th and 16th centuries, record the number of taxpayers and tenants in the village and give us some idea of the number of people who lived there. From the early 17th century, there exists a map of the village showing two rows of houses each side of the town gate. These sources show a relatively prosperous village. However, by 1825 the village seems to have gone into decline and the east end was abandoned and village was described as 'little.' Today Denwick is largely an estate village built in the first half of the 19th century.
