Chris Ruskin has written a book about disappearing farms in Weardale. It is full of photos of derelict farms from Wolsingham up to Killhope, with paragraphs from people she has interviewed, the last people to live in the buildings and other facts. It is due to be published on November 29th, when she will be signing the books at Stanhope Hub 10am - 2 pm, and also at Cowshill Village Hall Saturday December 1st. The cost is £12.99. This photo shows the front cover, the farm on it is Birkshaw, which is on the back road between Stanhope and Eastgate. Lovely Christmas present!!
