Archdeacon Newton (County Durham)
Unfortunately, these medieval remains are the only recorded historical or archaeological sites to be found in the village. Although prehistoric and Roman remains are found in other nearby parishes, no trace has been found in Archdeacon Newton itself. This is probably because it is a very small parish, and little archaeological or historical research has been carried out here.
The village is still a small farming hamlet, though since World War II the landscape has changed with the construction of the A1(M) motorway just to the south-east.
