Local History: Hutton Magna

  • Description

    "Hutton Magna lies in the south of Durham to the south-east of Barnard Castle. It was in fact in North Yorkshire until 1974. It sits in a wide rolling landscape of lush farmland. The village itself is a single street of low stone cottages. The village of Hutton was first recorded in the Domesday book in AD1086.
