Medieval mill to be excavated in Northumberland National Park

Lottery funding of almost £10,000 has enabled a local archaeology group to plan a summer excavation of a site in Northumberland National Park.

Thanks to a grant of £9,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), members of the Coquetdale Community Archaeology group will lead a survey and excavation work in the River Coquet near Barrowburn, around 10 miles west of Ingram, from mid-July.

The object is to uncover more remnants of what is believed to be a medieval fulling mill operated by local monks.
