Discovering County Durham & Teesdales by Charlie Emett
Book DescriptionCounty Durham and Teesside lie at the heart of north-east England. Together they constitute a richly diverse area, far removed from the days when it was synonymous with coal and heavy industry. Today almost every sign of the Durham coalfield has gone, and the industries that played such an important role in the world economy during the Industrial Revolution have also been consigned to history. Nowadays the 'Land of the Prince Bishops' is known for its historic towns and cities, and its beautiful countryside and open moorland - where picturesque towns and villages abound, along with magnificent country houses and castles. In his new book, Charlie Emett, ably assisted by Ron Dodsworth, has chosen 100 of the most fascinating, intriguing and historic sites in County Durham and Teesside - not necessarily the most obvious or the well-known tourist traps, but all accessible to the public. From landscape features to obscure villages, from remnants of forgotten industries to surprising buildings, all aspects of the area's history are included here. It is a treat for local residents and an eye-opener for visitors, "Discovering County Durham and Teesside" will be welcomed by anyone who is keen to know more about this remarkably varied part of Britain.
