Shincliffe & High Shincliffe


Shincliffe is a village in the County Durham located by the River Wear just over a mile from the City of Durham. In the Middle Ages Shincliffe was an agricultural community which belonged to the Prior of Durham Cathedral. River crossings at Shincliffe have a long history, possibly going back to Roman times. In 1405 Bishop Skirlaw built a stone bridge at Shincliffe and this was replaced by newer bridges over time. The population of Shincliffe grew with the growth of coal mining during the 19th Century, including Shincliffe Colliery (now High Shincliffe). Shincliffe parish incorporates Shincliffe Village, High Shincliffe, Sherburn House and Whitwell House.
