Village Hall - Main Shot

The Village

Butterknowle is a pretty village within the Gaunless Valley, close to the town of Bishop Auckland. It is home to the Gaunless Valley Visitor Centre which celebrates 600 years of industrial heritage in the area.


The Hall

The village hall is located on Pinfold Lane and was opened in 1962. The trustees of the Village Hall Association purchased the land on which the village hall stands for the princely sum of 311.11s.0d. (three hundred and eleven pounds eleven shillings) which in today's terms would equate to somewhere in the region of 4000. The hall was extensively refurbished in 2001. The size and layout of Butterknowle Village Hall makes it an ideal choice for private and business functions.

The hall is available for hire for:

Meetings/Small Conferences
Stage Productions and Concerts

Rehearsals
Parties
Dances
Sports Classes
