Keys to the Past

Heatherwick (Otterburn)

The remains of a medieval or early post-medieval village lie near Monkridge Hall. The remains of earth and stone banks and vague building platforms are all that survive of most of the buildings. The foundations of Monkridge Old Hall show it was a cross passage house built on the side of an earlier bastle with a central byre doorway. Another bastle stands to the north, with walls about one metre thick.
