Tow Law Village

A village we passed through on the way to Housesteads.

The village itself has only been around since about 1841 when a coalmine and ironworks was constructed.

However the name Tow Law comes from the old English for "lookout mound", so presumably the site had some significance at a period well before the modern village.
