Edmundbyers Conservation Area


Edmundbyers is a small historic village located towards the north-east corner of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The village lies high on Edmundbyers Common, overlooking the Burnhope Burn. It is loose-knit, containing a village green which is probably a remnant of a once much larger green. A focal point is created with the convergence of roads adjacent to the Punchbowl Inn.

The village is 21 miles north west of Durham City and six miles west of Consett.

The Conservation Area was designated in November 1993, and amended in December 2011.
