Local History: Romaldkirk

  • Description

    "The village of Romaldkirk lies about 6 miles to the north-west of Barnard Castle. Until the 19th century it was the centre of a huge parish covering much of Teesdale. It included the villages of Lartington, Cotherstone, Hunderthwaite, Mickleton, Lune, Holwick and Romaldkirk. In one direction in went for over 30 miles. The earliest evidence for settlement in the area dates to the Mesolithic, when the first settlers were moving into Durham. A large number of flint tools of this date have been found at Briar Dykes...."
