Overview

Lanchester (Longovicium in Roman Times) is a village in North West Durham. The village parish church begun in 1143 had a ready made supply of stone: the old Roman Fort. It is in a conservation area centred on its church and the medieval village green. Nearby is the magnificent Ushaw College (see pic 4) where In 1808 a small unassuming Georgian Hall was constructed to house English Catholic students and priests who had fled the violence of the French Revolution. Walking here takes in gentle hills, such Burnhope, Charlaw Fell and Findon hill as well some historic monastic ruins. There is also access to Hedleyhope Fell Nature Reserve (see pic 3) , a splendid example of mid altitude heathland. It all looks better with a dusting of snow, as we had in 2022 ( see pics 1 & 2).
