Eggleston Conservation Area


Eggleston is an attractive and historic village located in the River Tees valley. The conservation area consists of two contrasting, but complementary, character areas.

To the south stands the splendid Eggleston Hall within its extensive walled grounds. To the north, either side of a green area consisting of the village green and a pasture field, extend the two main village streets along which stands an attractive range of stone-built houses ranging in date from the 18th to the late 20th centuries.

It is 26 miles south west of Durham City and six miles north west of Barnard Castle.

The conservation area was designated in 1987, and was amended in December 2011.

Eggleston Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Proposals

To ensure County Durham's conservation areas are properly managed, we are producing Conservation Area Appraisal documents that will help raise awareness of their special character and interest. The Eggleston Conservation Area Appraisal also recommends ways to improve and to manage change as well as providing an interesting history and snapshot of the area.
