Welcome to the Maelmin Heritage Trail
Maelmin was the name of a royal township that existed near the modern day village of Milfield in Anglo-Saxon times. Today it is the site of a series of reconstructions of local archaeological structures. These enable visitors to experience the scale of the originals which have been lost to time.
A henge and a dark-age house
Once there were many henges in the area surrounding Milfield - dating from around 2,000BC. The Dark-Age house was found a Tarmac's Cheviot Quarry which is located next to Maelmin. The reconstructions are faithful interpretations based upon archaeological evidence.
