Blakiston

Untitled

The manor of Blakiston stands on the North-western verge of Norton parish, adjoining Thorp and Winyard.

The old hall of Blakiston was taken down many years ago, and the materials sold at Stockton. The site was near the road, with deep meadows on the West, and some broken ground falling rapidly to the Thorp beck.
