About Hurworth on Tees.

  A picturesque village located 3 miles south east of Darlington and bordering the river Tees. Hurworth borders a single main road, which confusingly enough changes its name what seems like every 100 metres or so from Hurworth Road, Croft Road, Neasham Road along its entire length from the junction with the A167 at one end to the village of Neasham at the other. Well done, Darlington Planners... Not.

Gazza's coach driving skills and the recently opened Middlesbrough Football Club training ground have put Hurworth on the National News map.

Satellite photo of Hurworth

This photograph is centered on the junction of Elmfield Road with Croft Road. In the south west corner, Croft bridge crosses the River Tees. On higher resolution images available from Terraserver, the arches on the bridge are clearly visible and can be counted. The east coast railway line runs from the south west corner to the north west corner where it lies parallel to the River Skerne.   The A167 exits the image to the west crossing the River Skerne as it does. Hurworth Road runs from the south west corner over the railway line and exits the image to the east. On the north side of Hurworth road lie, the Grange estate, Hurworth Grange Community centre and agricultural land. Rockcliffe court surgery and Hurworth Comprehensive School are on the south side of the road . The River Tees borders Hurworth at the eastern end, with the foot bridge across the river clearly visible above the edge of the cloud.
 Did you know that a place name ending in Grange indicates that the land once belonged to an Abbey.
