This lavishly illustrated book covers Barnard Castle, Middleton-in-Teesdale and a selection of Teesdale villages including Piercebridge, Gainford, Staindrop, Greta Bridge, Cotherstone, Romaldkirk and Mickleton. In Barnard Castle the story begins with the castle building and the crucial bridging of the Tees with County Bridge. In Middleton we focus on the agricultural and lead mining industries and in the villages we visit picturesque greens, schools, inns and churches.Many books have been published showing the area in old photographs, but none show these in a 'through time' context as this book does. Old images are juxtaposed here with modern equivalents in full colour to demonstrate just how far, or not, things have changed in this historical and beautiful region of England. It will provide residents and visitors alike with a fascinating and nostalgic read.
