Stanley Co. Durham - Land of the Prince Bishops
Stanley Co. DurhamWhat's so special about Stanley, a town in North West Durham?
Well for a start it was where I spent my early years after being born in South Moor. It's also where I live now as well. So it means a lot to me as it is part of me but it also meant an awful lot to my ancestors who travelled from all parts of the country looking for work and found it in the pits in the area.
So these pages look not only at my family history but also the history of Stanley.
