BOWLEES VISITOR CENTRE

Here you can find information about things to see and do across the North Pennines, take part in our nature and landscape themed events, and explore the site.

SCARGILL CASTLE
Scargill Castle nestles in the beautiful Teesdale landscape close to the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Built in 1550 on the site of an earlier medieval castle, it has recently been restored from a crumbling ruin into a delightful retreat for two which combines historic character with all the cosiness and comfort expected in the 21st century.

THE VILLAGE BOOKSHOP
The Village Bookshop is in Middleton-in-Teesdale in County Durham. It is run entirely by volunteers as a charitable Trust. Profits are used to raise funds for local groups.

THE WITHAM
The Witham, with its grand neoclassical façade, lends distinction to Barnard Castle’s market place. It was founded in 1846 as a Mechanics’ Institute and People’s Dispensary, with a spacious Music Hall added to the complex in 1860. Since then it has evolved through changing times, making a huge contribution to the health, education and well-being of the people of Barnard Castle and Teesdale.
