Higham Dykes (Ponteland)
The deserted medieval village of Higham Dykes was first recorded in the 13th century. In the late 13th century it was given to the monks of Newminster Abbey in Morpeth. The village was never very big, and by the time that the abbey was closed down there were only two farms here. No earthwork remains of the other buildings have been seen.
