Garrigill conservation area

Designation of Garrigill conservation area

The central part of Garrigill village was designated as a conservation area on 16 November 2000.

Description of Garrigill

Garrigill is set among green agriculturally improved pastures, enclosed by stone walls, and areas of deciduous and Scots pine woodland in the South Tyne valley. This relatively sheltered landscape opens out dramatically onto the windswept fells of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which enclose the village on all sides. The majority of buildings date from the 18th and 19th centuries and are mostly constructed of buff or yellow sandstone. It is a village where agriculture and mining have co-existed for centuries, although there is little evidence now around the village of the scale of the previous mining activity.
