Startforth, Durham

Startforth is a village in Teesdale, in the Pennines of England, situated a short distance south-west of Barnard Castle, on the opposite side of the River Tees. It was historically located in the North Riding of Yorkshire, the reason the village lies outside Barnard Castle's boundaries, although many of the villagers consider themselves to be residents of the town, with the village merely being a suburb.
