The water pump on Sedgefield green opposite the Black Lion public house is the start of the Sedgefield heritage trail. According to the trail leaflet, Sedgefield used to be renowned for the quality of its water and was once referred to as the 'Montpellier of the North'.

On a good day, the town looks very pretty and has much of interest. A good place to start is the Heritage Trail which is available on the web LinkExternal link and as a leaflet available locally (try the Council Offices off the High Street near Hope Inn).
