Hurworth Place


Hurworth Place is a village in the Borough of Darlington in County Durham, on the boundry with North Yorkshire. It is situated on the northern bank of the River Tees, opposite the village of Croft-on-Tees, with the two villages connected by Croft Bridge, which dates back to the 14th century. The River Skerne joins the River Tees at Hurworth Place and the village is part of the civil parish of Hurworth. In 1829 the Stockton and Darlington Railway Company built a branch line from Darlington to Croft, with the terminus located at Hurworth Place, to transport coal and lead to North Yorkshire and onward destinations.
