Hardwick, near Blackhall Colliery


HARDWICK, a hamlet, in the parish of Monk-Hesleton, union of Easington, S. division of Easington ward, N. division of the county of Durham, 2½ miles (E.) from Castle-Eden. This place belonged to the convent of Durham, and during its possession by that establishment had a chapel, which was confirmed to the monks by Richard I., and was probably destroyed by the Scots in the reign of Edward II.; the landed endowment was soon afterwards attached to the vicarage of Hesleton. Hardwick House is surrounded by fine plantations and various kinds of forest-trees.
