Details

NETHERWITTON WITTON SHIELDS NZ 19 SW NZ 124904 5/155 Garden and yard walls west of Witton Shields Tower GV II Remains of former louse, now garden and yard walls, perhaps medieval. Roughly- shaped large blocks with irregular quoins. The remains comprise the west and north walls of a north-south building with a large stack at the north end and a later addition beyond, generally surviving to a height of 1.5 - 2 metres. Slopstone in the west wall; various blocked openings. The unusual positioning of the doorway, now blocked, in the west end of Witton Shields Tower (q.v.) appears to align with a doorway in the remaining stub of the east wall at the ruined house, suggesting that the latter is of C16 or earlier date.
