Maulds Meaburn :: Shared Description

The origins of this small Cumbrian village in the parish of Crosby Ravensworth are probably in Norman times. Maud de Veteripont, wife of the lord of Appleby, was given the estate of Meaburn in c.1174 and the first specific reference to Maulds Meaburn (possibly named after Maud, the other part of the name simply meaning 'burn by the meadow') is c.1210. Since 1751 the estate has been the property of the Earls of Lonsdale.

The present village lies mainly to the east of the road from Crosby Ravensworth to King's Meaburn. Most of the mediaeval village was to the west of the present road and no longer exists, but its site is sufficiently undisturbed to have the protected status of Scheduled Ancient Monument. The designation includes part of the medieval open field system and mill race. More recently it has also benefited from being part of the extended Yorkshire Dales National Park.
