Knowledge of the Durham Derwent Valley's significance in industrial and social history had been lost to all but a few academics and local historians. The Land of Oak & Iron project has transformed that.

This Local History Portal is your doorway to a wealth of information, not only about the history of this special area, but also its myths, legends and notable characters.
