Ramshaw (Bishop Auckland)


Ramshaw is a village in County Durham, located about 4 miles south-west of Bishop Auckland (not to be confused with the hamlet of Ramshaw, near Consett). It is part of the civil parish of Evenwood and Barony.

Ramshaw is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated to the west of Bishop Auckland. Ramshaw was originally a mining village and is home to two restaurants, the Bridge Inn and the Trotters Arms. There is also an Indian style restaurant within the Trotters Arms - a Taste of India. The River Gaunless runs through Ramshaw. The name Gaunless itself is of later Norse origin, meaning useless. It is believed that this derives from the river's inability to power a mill, sustain fish or create fertile floodplains. The bridge connecting Ramshaw with neighbouring village Evenwood is between 300 and 500 years old. Ramshaw has a caravan site.
