Ravensworth, path and building
Pedestrian Transport Site
An old path runs from the carriage drive to the South Tower along a yew lined walk. There is a pile of loose stone at the stone end of this walk, perhaps indicating that a building once occupied this spot. It might have been a 'seat' or garden building to take advantage of the excellent views across the parkland. Or it might be linked to deer husbandry, agriculture or industry.
