Trimdon Village Conservation Area


Trimdon Village lies 6 miles south of the historic City of Durham and 9 miles west of Hartlepool.

The conservation area centres around the designated village green which dates from the medieval period, and is surrounded by a collection of historic buildings including a Norman church on a mound on the village green. Trimdon has been the site of an established settlement since at least the 12th century and there has been documented evidence of archaeological discoveries dating from the Bronze Age onwards.

The conservation area was originally designated in 1993 and was reviewed and amended in 2012.

Trimdon Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Proposals

To ensure County Durham's conservation areas are properly managed, we produce Conservation Area Character Appraisal documents that will help raise awareness of their special character and interest. The Trimdon Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal was formally approved by our Cabinet on 12 December 2012 and recommends ways to improve and to manage change as well as providing an interesting history and snapshot of the area.
