Keys to the Past

Carraw medieval village (Newbrough and Fourstones)

The vill of Carrawer was a member of the liberty of Tynedale. Medieval documents state that the settlement had been granted to Hexham Priory in the 12th century and other documents record leases and changes in ownership. In the 14th century the township was held in five farms but by 1536 the 'pasture was waste and valueless'. A tower also stood here in the 15th century but had fallen into ruins by the mid 15th century. By the late 18th century there was only one farmstead.
