Tyne and Wear HER(16559): Hylton Castle, Castle Farm - Details
Hylton Castle, Castle Farm
Agriculture and Subsistence
Land Use Site
Farm shown on the First Edition Ordnance Survey Plan, c.1865. Named Castle Farm by 1898. An archaeological watching brief in late 2010 by ASUD revealed a wall, cellar, three stone surfaces and a well with a well-preserved wooden water pump. These features were associated with a small assemblage of pottery, glass, animal bone, wooden objects and architectural fragments of post-medieval date. These finds and features probably relate to the farm.
