Description"On the south side of Holmside Lane. Once a pub, probably called The Board Inn. John Evans reports that 'it was pretty basic and one sat in what was more or less the front parlour of the house whilst the beer was dispensed from a jug filled directly from the barrel in a rear room - or pantry I guess'. Burnhope was categorised as a "category D village" by Durham County Council. With the decline of coal-mining locally, 114 villages were classified in this way in 1951, and another seven in 1964. They were left to wither and die, without economic assistance or development. The policy ended in 1977." Photo by Christine Johnstone, 2012.
