Old Middleton, abandoned village, Wooler.

  As you walk from the bridge over the Carey burn and down Happy Valley you come to a vivid reminder of how the landscape and population has changed.

Old Middleton had 11 tenants living here back in 1580, a village green and a community that probably imagined that they would always be there.

Now it is just ruins ...two houses with walls, one without a roof and one with quite a reasonable roof
