High Westwood, Durham

High Westwood is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated a few miles to the north of Consett, near Ebchester and Hamsterley. Once a thriving village, due to the local coalmining, it is now little more than a few private houses, and the former Westwood County Junior Mixed and Infant School is now a housing complex where the houses are named after the rows of colliery houses that were demolished in the early 1970s.
