Brignall


Brignall is a village in County Durham, located about 3 miles south-east of Barnard Castle and 1 mile south-west of Greta Bridge. The settlement includes a number of farms and houses distributed along Brignall Lane. The parish church of St Mary's here was built in 1834, replacing a 13th century church. The ruins of the old church can be seen by the River Greta. Historically, Brignall was an ancient parish in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Later, as part of Startforth Rural District, Brignall became part of County Durham in 1974. The village and it's surrounding area form Brignall Civil Parish.

Brignall is a village in the Pennines of England, situated close to Barnard Castle. The population at the 2011 Census remained less than 100. Details are kept within the parish of Rokeby. It was historically located in the North Riding of Yorkshire but along with the rest of the former Startforth Rural District it was transferred to County Durham for administrative and ceremonial purposes on 1 April 1974, under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972.

Brignall sits adjacent to the River Greta, a site of special scientific interest. The River Greta and the Brignall area were painted by John Sell Cotman and J. M. W. Turner amongst others. Bird watching, walking and other outdoor activities can be pursued in the area.
