Monkridge Hall (Otterburn)

The ruins of the former Monkridge Hall stand near the ruins and earthworks of a village called Heatherwick. The building was built about the end of the 17th century by the Hall family and may have been a pele tower. It was replaced in the later 18th century by a new Monkridge Hall to the north-east.
