Notes about the Image:
Carlton is interesting example of survival of very old village form. The ‘Harrying of the North' 1069-70 seems to have introduced changes in settlement patterns. Dr Brian Roberts has argued that following the suppression of the northern rebellion, new settlements were established in a devastated areas. Villages were planted at more or less regular intervals, within them land-holdings were measured out in symmetrical units of eights and sixteens. Carlton is a good example of this, with its parallel rows of houses facing each other across a long narrow green. Behind the houses lie their gardens, stretching to the boundaries of the medieval open fields surrounding the village. Although individual buildings have been built and re-built many times, the basic layout of the village preserves a shape which probably dates to the reign of William the Conqueror. Taken from and more information in Norman McCord, North East History from the Air, p. 35.
