Looking up the track from the main road just east of the Methodist Chapel to the old hamlet of Weeds NY9038 : The settlement of Weeds, north-west of Westgate
Before the main road (A689) was constructed through Weardale the old route through Westgate was on the old path network that passes by Weeds, east to cross the Middlehope Burn, probably via an old bridge, and north of the site of the old Castle to Wapping and High Westgate, a line now followed by footpaths.

This area seems to have been settled as early as 1250, originally known as New Close, a clearing on the west edge of the Deer Forest. Some of the present buildings in Weeds date from 1840 to 1896.
