Houghton-le-Spring is a town in the North East of England situated seven miles from Durham and six miles from Sunderland. It was a mining town until 1981 when the collieries were closed down. Located close to the North Sea and five miles from the town of Seaham the parish of Houghton-le-Spring is officially part of the city of Sunderland and is accessed via the A690.
Houghton- le- Spring has a good and varied selection of local shops and pubs, most of which are situated in Newbottle street. The Golden Lion pub is the oldest of the pubs and is believed to be around 300 years old. Other buildings of interest within the parish, especially to us as surveyors, are St Michaels and All Angels church which dates from the 12th century and Houghton Hall, a 17 th century manor house, there are many other buildings in the town that are also from this century and are now listed. We have carried out structural surveys on many listed buildings in the area.
Every year in October the town holds its traditional festival; this is the oldest one in the whole of Sunderland and is attended by many different local communities and also those from surrounding areas. It was originally a festival dedicated to the Parish church in the 12 th century. The modern version of the festival now lasts for ten days and boasts a large funfair, carnival, a firework display and an Ox roast.
The parish town is also close to many places of interest; all located less than six miles away. These include The Washington Wetland Centre, the North East Aircraft Museum and Monkwearmouth Station Museum.
