Marwood is a rural parish in Teesdale. It is mainly an agricultural area although in recent years industry has begun to build and the Glaxo Smithkline factory and Harmire Enterprise Park are both based in the parish of Marwood.
Marwood Social Centre was opened in 1953 to commemorate the Coronation on land given by Mr William Stoddart of Hetherick Grange Farm, near Barnard Castle.
