Wharmley medieval village (Newbrough and Fourstones)

The earliest record of a settlement at Wharmley is in the 13th century when it was recorded in the Iter of Wark for 1279. Since the 14th century, it seems to have remains little more than a hamlet and now contains one farmstead and three cottages. Two groups of low earthwork enclosures are all that remain of the medieval settlement.
