About Us

Bishop Auckland is an attractive, traditional market town on the River Wear in South West Durham. The town is steeped in history. Auckland Castle has for hundreds of years been the main residence of the Bishops of Durham. The castle is surrounded by a beautiful natural park. One of Bishop Auckland's most famous former residents was Stanley Jefferson, better known as Stan Laurel of the comedy duo Laurel & Hardy. He attended the town's Grammar School whilst his parents owned the now-demolished Eden Theatre. Football has always played an important role in the lives of the people of Bishop Auckland. Its own team won the F.A. Amateur Cup in three consecutive years during the 1950's. The town's brand new stadium, Heritage Park, lies next door to The March Hare. The winners of the first ever world cup were a team from the nearby town of West Auckland, when they beat the future Italian giants Juventus.
