About Bishop Auckland
Bishop Auckland is an ancient town with a long history as the official residence of the Bishop of Durham. The town's history has been documented back to at least 1,000AD and it's thought that a settlement has existed on the site for considerably longer still.
As was the case for many northern towns, Bishop Auckland's expanded rapidly during the industrial revolution, as the arrival of the railways made it possible for local coal mines to expand rapidly and sell coal much further afield.
The town's long history has left Bishop Auckland a number of notable attractions for visitors. Nearby Newton Cap Viaduct, Escomb's Saxon Church and the Auckland castle are all popular, as are the remains of the Roman fort at Binchester.
Today, Bishop Auckland is favoured by many commuters who value its proximity to both Darlington and Durham. Both are about 12 miles away with good road connections. Residents don't need to travel to hire a van, though, as rental services are available in the town:
