Keys to the Past

Archway Cottage (Haltwhistle)

The oldest part of this building is a post-medieval bastle, probably built in the late 16th or early 17th century. It has been altered on two occasions, in 1740 and in the 19th century but still has some bastle features. The plinth around the base of the walls is made of massive boulders, the walls are about one metre thick and the original byre doorway, although blocked, can still be seen. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
