While some towns and villages in the UK date back hundreds, if not thousands, of years, Spennymoor is only around a century-and-a-half old! Before then, it was but a vast expanse of moorland with thorn and gorse bushes.
Neither Britons nor Romans cultivated the area, although a Roman camp named Vinovium stood relatively nearby. Indeed, up until 1800, present-day Spennymoor remained largely barren and the few roads across it were considered dangerous.
This all changed when a local mining industry emerged, thus prompting the establishment of Spennymoor to house pit workers. Soon after, the community was ringed with collieries and black furnaces, followed by the arrival of the railway in 1876.
Since the decline of coal, however, a new staple has started to take hold: Afternoon Tea Spennymoor venues. Lunch, anyone?
