The House on the Hill: The History of Ushaw and the Deerness Valley

The House on the Hill: The History of Ushaw and the Deerness Valley is our latest exhibition running from Saturday 16 September – Sunday 5 November.

Ushaw is perched on a hill 600 feet above sea level between the Browney and Deerness valleys. In 1808 a small unassuming Georgian Hall was constructed to house English Catholic students and priests who had fled the violence of the French Revolution.

The founding of Ushaw seminary had a significant impact on the local area, as it became a prominent landowner and employer.

This exhibition will examine how this once small House on a Hill shaped the history and built environment of the surrounding area and how it forged and continues to grow strong connections with the local community.

Containing never before seen photographs, objects and archives from Ushaw’s collections, the exhibition tells little known stories from County Durham.

Entry to The House on the Hill: The History of Ushaw and the Deerness Valley  is included with Annual Pass and Day Pass.
