The article reports on the sale of Ravenscleugh Farm at Elsdon in Northumberland, England, which is believed to be the campsite for the Scottish army prior to the battle of Otterburn in 1388, by George F White. The property is a 267-acre traditional upland farm with a four-bed house and several buildings. Selling agent Ben Johnson believes that the real estate will not necessarily attract just farmers.
