About Newbiggin

In lower Bishopdale where the glacial moraine and drumlins cause small undulations in the landscape the village of Newbiggin nestles close to the valley floor on the south side of the dale.

The village is peaceful, long and linear with the houses intermittent about a narrow street that is linked to the B6160 by a minor road and small lane but has no through traffic.

Although Newbiggin means 'New Buildings' the term is relative since here are some of the finest examples of 17th century dwellings in the dales.
