Shadforth is located in North-East England, about 5 miles from Durham.
The village is very old and was mentioned in the Boldon Book of 1183. It is perhaps the only village in England with the name 'Shadforth' meaning 'Shallow Ford’. The oldest part of the village has maintained its medieval shape of irregular houses placed around a linear village green. Although surrounded by coal mines and industry, Shadforth is unusual as it has always remained rural, never having its own pit. Shadforth is known as one of the ‘green villages’ of the North-East of England, having a registered village green and being designated a conservation area.
Shadforth Village Hall, hosts many village activities and is available to hire by village residents. There is limited free parking outside.
