Tyne and Wear heritage

The interesting historic town of Houghton-le-Spring dates back to Norman times, with the church of St Michael and All Angels dating back from the late 12th century as a key symbol of both the past and present. Each year in October this attractive parish church holds the ‘Houghton Feast’, an ancient festival that runs for 10 days.

A great place for a brisk walk
