Dilston (Corbridge)

This is the site of the deserted medieval village of Dilston. It probably first developed in the early 12th century. It was mentioned several times in the 13th and 14th centuries, but by the 18th century a map showed only the ruins of Dilston Hall and a park. A few earthworks that may be the remains of the village can be seen in parkland east of the tower.
