Sedgefield is a large village, located in the parish of Upper Skerne, in County Durham in north east England. Known as being the constituency of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, it received a visit from US President Bush during 2003, an event which required intensive high security measure to be undertaken including fastening manhole covers and drains and closing all of the village to all traffic. Quite a disruption for a country village unused to such events, and the inevitable media attention, that surrounded it. Sedgefield in the 19th century was a great hunting centre, regarded as the ‘Melton of the North’ and home to the headquarters of celebrated hunting man Ralph Lambton. His friend Robert Smith Surtees, the humorous writer, lived at nearby Hamsterley Hall. The church in Sedgefield, St. Edmunds, is especially noted for its ornate seventeenth century Cosin woodwork which is unique to County Durham. Since the display at Brancepeth perished in fire, this is particularly precious. The population of Sedgefield is around 5,000 and the village is twinned with Hamminkeln in Germany. The borough of Sedgefield has a much larger population of around 87,000 which includes Spennymoor, Ferryhill and Shildon but its largest town is Newton Aycliffe.
