Shepherd's Dene, Riding Mill


Shepherd's Dene is a house, now a retreat/conference centre, located by Ridingmill Burn, about half a mile east of Riding Mill. The house was built in 1906-7 in an 'arts and craft' style, and set in 26 acres of grounds. The house was built for D.S. Marjoribanks and was originally called 'Shepherd's Bank'. The name was changed to 'Shepherd's Dene' in 1921 when it was purchased by Geoffrey and Ethel Newell.[1] The house was given to the Diocese of Newcastle in 1945 by the Newells.[2] It is now shared with the Diocese of Durham and is run as an independent charity. Shepherd's Dene is a Grade II listed building.[3]
