Pair of bastles, north-west of the Green at Chesterwood, Haydon Bridge, Haydon - Northumberland (UA)

The site consists of the scheduled remains of four defended farmhouses dating from between 1575 and 1650. Those to the south and west of the Green have recently been repaired and converted to residential use. The pair to the far north-west of the Green are not actively used and are deteriorating. There are areas of loose, unstable and open-jointed stone walling. Discussions are underway with the owner to help bring forward a programme of repairs.
