Old Cassop


Old Cassop is a small rural village in County Durham, located about 4 miles south-east of the city of Durham and a mile north-west of (New) Cassop. It lies within the civil parish of Cassop-cum-Quarrington. Old Cassop is situated on a hill that rises from Cassop Vale at the edge of the East Durham limestone plateau. In 1981 Old Cassop was designated as a conservation area, as a traditional rural settlement that has remained largely untouched by the mining industry, which transformed the rest of the surrounding area.[1] The village has two working farms at its heart, along with traditional and modern houses and agricultural buildings.
