Lanchester is a thriving village set in the delightful River Browney Valley in the County of Durham, and is home to over four thousand people. The village is steeped in history from the early hunters who first settled here, to the Saxons, Vikings, and Romans, who built their formidable Fort Longovicium close by. There is an impressive church dedicated to All Saints which was started in the 12th century, although much altered, it still houses ancient 13th Century windows, and a Roman Alter. Step outside the church and the large village green unfurls like a carpet, and is edged with attractive stone cottages and houses. There are a variety of shops, although as the village is just eight miles or so from the historical cathedral city of Durham shoppers have an enviable choice. For hungry visitors there are a few restaurants offering tasty treats, or of course with the welcoming atmosphere of the three pubs within the village it may be hard to choose. Walkers and cyclists will be eager to explore the stunning countryside, where there is a chance to walk along footpaths and the old railway track which journeys through woodland and pretty countryside for a spectacular twelve miles.
