Cotherstone


Cotherstone is a village in County Durham which is situated near the confluence of the River Balder and the River Tees. Cotherstone is located about 2.5 miles north-west of Barnard Castle and 2 miles south-east of Romaldkirk.

Cotherstone is a village and civil parish in the Pennine hills, in Teesdale, County Durham, England.

Cotherstone lies within the historic county boundaries of 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.

There was a railway station at Cotherstone on the now-closed Barnard Castle to Middleton-in-Teesdale line. The railway line crossed the River Balder at the Balder Viaduct just north of Cotherstone.

Cotherstone cheese is a celebrated delicacy, and the village was famous for it by at least 1858.
