Shitlington (Wark)

This is the site of the deserted medieval village of Shitlington. The village was first recorded here in 1279. However, there was no evidence for a village here in the 17th century beyond a few scattered settlements. The only remains to be seen are the earthwork traces of enclosure banks and ridge and furrow.
