Newbiggin Conservation Area

Newbiggin is located on the north side of the River Tees in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), rising from the base of the valley to spread up its lower slopes.

The village is primarily located to the north of the B6277, the main road through Teesdale. It is about 5km north-west of Middleton-in-Teesdale, and 25km north-west of Barnard Castle.

The Conservation Area was designated in 1987, and amended in December 2011.

Newbiggin Conservation Area appraisal and management proposals

To ensure County Durham's conservation areas are properly managed, we are producing Conservation Area Appraisal documents that will help raise awareness of their special character and interest. The Newbiggin Conservation Area Appraisal recommends ways to improve and to manage change as well as providing an interesting history and snapshot of the area.
