The medieval village of Guyzance, lies a few miles south by east of Alnwick, it is first mentioned in historical records in 1242, The village walls, and buildings including the village Pump are all gradeII listed. Northumberland

Listed building--A listed building is one recognised by the Government as being of special architectural or historic interest, as specified by the Planning (Listed buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. Listing is made at three levels of importance Grade I, the most important, Grade II* and Grade II. Listed building consent is required before any alterations, extensions or demolitions can be made to a listed building which might affect its character.Such buildings can be altered - but only with due consideration given to the history present.

Guyzance is one of only two places in Great Britain with a -zance ending - the other being Penzance in Cornwall. The similar names are co-incidence however.
