Crook lies approximately ten miles to the south west of Durham City in the county of Durham. Until the mid-nineteenth century it was a tiny hamlet that was part of Brancepeth parish. The surrounding area was mainly rural and it is likely that most people living in Crook were employed in agriculture. This changed in 1844 when the first pit was opened. At one time there were a total of 26 mines in and around the area of Crook.
