Fishponds north-west of Walwick Grange Farm (Warden)

These are the remains of four medieval fishponds on level ground to the west bank of the North Tyne. They are all connected to form one group. A stream running immediately south of the fishponds was probably used to supply water to the ponds. The ponds would have been used for keeping and breeding fish for food. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
