The farm at Shield Hall contains the remains of a late medieval building. Part of the building pre-dates the majority of the Northumberland towers, and probably dates to the 14th century. It was probably part of a medieval house. The block was altered in the later 17th or 18th century and turned into a farm building. It is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
