Bishop Auckland, the gateway to Weardale, is a busy market town in South West Durham. The town stands high above a meander in the River Wear, commanding spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. If you are interested in history, Bishop Auckland has it all. The main street, Newgate Street, follows the Roman road, Dere Street. A mile from the town are the remains of Binchester Roman Fort, and at Escomb we have one of the finest examples of early Christian architecture in Northern Europe in the restored 7th Century Escomb Saxon Church In Bishop Aucklands historic Market Place, is the Town Hall, a superb, refurbished library and arts complex. Also just off the Market Place, in North Bondgate, is the Discovery Centre, an exhibition and events space open to the public. And of course we have the magnificent Auckland Castle, the official country residence of the Prince Bishops for centurys and still the official home of the Bishop of Durham. Surrounding the Castle is the Bishop's Deer Park.

On Newgate Street once stood the Eden Theatre, managed for several years by Arthur Jefferson, the father of Stan Laurel. Stan was baptised in St. Peters Church and went to school at King James I Grammar School. But, if your interest is shopping, you will not be disappointed. Bishop Auckland has over 200 shops and over 50 cafes, restaurants take-aways and pubs. Venture to the south end of Newgate Street or into Fore Bondgate for specialist shops you just wont find on most high streets. The earliest record we have of Bishop Auckland is as a bishop's borough, given to the Church by Canute in about 1020. Undoubtedly, the village existed some time before this, and there was a church at South Church from Saxon times, possibly earlier. In 1083, monks were sent there from Durham Cathedral to form a collegiate church. They lived in the Deanery at South Church. The medieval village stretched from the Town Head at the top of Newton Cap Bank, down to the Palace wall. The Market Place and Bondgates were a continuos village green.

Medieval bishops enlarged what was originally a small manor house to cater for their important guests whom they would entertain with hunting in their great forest of Weardale. In 1190 the Bishop's Chapel, now the largest private chapel in Europe, was built, originally as a banqueting hall. Bishop Cosin converted it to a chapel in 1665 after the Civil War. Medieval Prince Bishops were extremely powerful, and the bishopric acted as a buffer state against the marauding Scots. Some of these powers lasted until the mid-19th Century, when Bishop van Mildert, the last of the Prince Bishops, relinquished his rights and also his castle in Durham, giving it to found the new university. After this Auckland Castle became the official residence of the Bishops. At some time in the 15th Century the College of St. Andrew's at South Church moved up to the Palace grounds. The white cottages to the left of the entrance gates form one side of the original quadrangle. The school which they ran had a checkered history, and was revived in 1604 as King James 1 Grammar School - but, in fact, goes back very much further.
