Low Cranecleugh farmstead, Kielder Water (Falstone)

The remains of a post-medieval farmstead stand by the Cranecleugh Sike. The walls are now reduced to low grass-covered foundations. When it was first recorded a house and small enclosure were seen, together with an area of narrow ridge and furrow cultivation and a large enclosure. More recently only a rectangular enclosure was noted.
