Converted building of St Anne's Convent, Angate Street
St Anne's Convent and girls' school was established in 1892. It was sold for development in 2004. Several of the original buildings were converted for private houses and land to the rear has been developed with new houses and apartments. The road by the side leads to the Demesne Mill long-stay car park and picnic area NZ0737 : Grand day for ducks, Demesne Mill picnic area

Wolsingham
Wolsingham is a small market town in County Durham situated where the Waskerley Beck joins the River Wear. It styles itself as the 'Gateway to Weardale'. It is an interesting and friendly place, bustling with life, but with many old and interesting buildings. It now serves a predominantly agricultural community but once had a thriving and important steel works.

My descriptions have been aided by the local book: Wolsingham: Gateway to Weardale by Elaine Ridley, Margaret Shepheard and Vivien Welsh (ISBN 0 953074 97 B)
