Woodhouses, Kielder Water (Falstone)

The remains of a village survived as earthworks and building foundations until the flooding of Kielder Water reservoir in the 1980s. At least seven buildings were visible and were surrounded by field banks and ridge and furrow cultivation. It stood near the Pot Burn which flowed into the River North Tyne. It is not known why the village became deserted or how old it is.
